Thank you Randy for clearing the air, especially for us located way out in here in the frozen tundra of the great Midwest....For all who have a question about Venom Juice:
In 2007 Eric Rendleman came to us for some help in developing a tire treatment line and this became Venom Juice.
We made it and Eric made it work for his customers.
When Eric got sick we processed Eric's orders to keep his business going and we made sure Eric had some income while he was sick.
When Eric got back on his feet Eric took it back over and we continued to make it for him.
This continued until Eric got a great job and into a a great training program to be a machinist.
Quickly it became apparent Eric could not do both things and his future looked much brighter as a machinist.
At this point Track Tac took it back over and we planed to supply the products until the customers did not want Venom Juice.
Kevin Bishop approached us after he left UltraMax.
He wanted to take Venom Juice to a new level,
We agreed and started supplying Kevin.
Note we have always made all of the Venom line.
When Kevin came up with a brilliant idea for post manufactured tire modification it was banned.
The bad part was it really was brilliant and it got banned at the same time everyone was talking about breathing new life into karting.
This could have been some of the very new life everyone said was needed.
Needless to say Kevin Bishop walked away from karting very disillusioned and disheartened.
Now we have it back again. Time will tell what the future will be.
All the best,
Thats a really tough question because nobody knows about the new clay. I would be scared to wipe with the Grape if you dont think there is going to be much moisture in the track. I would just have a couple different options for tires if you can, this weekend will be a learning experience for everyone. If you are going to where I think you are I heard they put down 2ft of dirt on the track so who knows what to expect.Got a race this weekend. brand new Clay put on the track last week and never been ran. Running ht3s on and normally medium to high bight track. Started conditioning last night with GK1 outside preparing for a 70° or hotter day. There’s been very little moisture this week and the temperatures are now going to be 60 and below. should I swap to grape or do you think the tires will become too soft they’re already about 55. I also forgot to mention pretty high kart count expected
Thats a good question. There is a lot of variables that come into play with the tire hardening besides just internal prep. For instance if the tire is ran vs remaining new, is it wiped on vs not, is it in a climate controlled room? As far as just rolling a tire and letting it sit on the shelf new with no wipes in 70 degree temperature the tire will harden up about 1 point every couple of weeks.How many points does a tire treated with the new Kryptonite harden per week?
