I used sikaflex 291 when I did mine. The reason I used sikaflex is because the product allows a certain amount of flex, before it will break it's seal. I also looked at using 4200 but when compaired to sikaflex and it's ability to flex, I thought the sikaflex 291 was the better product for the Genoa track. It does take a few days to firm up and shouldn't be used before it does.
