Tire conditioner

What’s a good tire conditioner? My local track will require me to use goat to soften/prep tires. I remember there was a tire conditioner we used back around 2010. But I can’t remember exactly what it was. For some reason I’m thinking hot lap.
 
We have a lot of guys running goat tracks that will mix our Pink Panther 50/50 with goat to keep some oil in their tires.
If it's a tire that benefits from internal, use Pink Panther internally for better results. Maxxis, Vegas, some Hoosiers, we treat internally. For Burris and soft sidewall tires, just mix the two 50/50 and apply topically (ie no internal.)

Forgot to mention that we’re running reaper tires.
 
I have track claw too. Seems like it may be a conditioner as well or am I wrong?
My LITTLE experience with it , I wouldn't consider it a conditioner, I think it removes little more oils than preserves . But it great on Burris 33s right tire at the right time .

Don't use anything harsh internal then 90% of the time.
For just conditioning, use our Medium Rare.
You could also try HLII or as Chris mentioned their Tire Tuff. (I'd suggest the original internal (brown stuff) rather than mint - but Chris knows their product better than I do.)
 
Track claw seems to work best in our shop when storing tires for the winter. During the season we use tire tuff mint or hot lap 2. We are on burris tires

Do you apply it after resurfacing the tires each time? If so, how long do you let it soak in before you start working them for the next race?

What I do is I resurface tires, apply a medium coat with a 3 inch paint roller and set them off to the side for at least a week, then I will start prepping them after desired time I designate. Also depends on track conditions as we sometimes mix tire tuff mint with our preps for what the track calls for. I had a driver who junked a few newer sets of tires mixing hot lap 2 with goat heavily before he went out on the track. Be careful what you mix and put on your tires as sometimes the desired effect you want does not equate to longevity of your rubber inventory.
 
Track Claw is not a conditioner, its actually a more harsh type prep. Track Claw also has a spray tire cleaner, which works well. The 2 are very different.

The track claw I have in my shop is the quart can of tire strengthener. I tried it many moons ago as a prep and it did not act as a harsh prep. It actually helped maintain my duro though. So I put in on my shelf as a end of season wipe on my burris tires. I did see that they have 2 different aerosol spray cans and the tire strengthener now. Maybe we are talking about different products from their line.
