PolyFlex not as soft as I expected.

I'm making a radio controlled tank at the moment. I'm using PETG for the track with a PolyFlex pad to give it some grip. It's all printed perfectly so far, the PETG is great, no warp, no smell.

But the polyflex isn't as flexible as I expected, it's not radically different to the PETG it's attached to. Is there a softer alternative I could use or something I can do to make it softer?

You have a variety of materials to use, including NinjaFlex and Cheetah to name a few. Just be aware that the softer the filament is the more experimentation you will need to get it to print well. While I have printed even NinjaFlex, it takes some adjustments of the settings to dial them in for the material.
