hummm. when it's applied, the tires should feel slimy. just slippery as he**. let it soak for maybe 5-15 minutes, and wipe it off with an absorbant towel very well. sguigee (sp?) it out if you can. they may still feel slimy. don't worry. a few laps and you'll be dialed. or you can accellerate the process by doing burnouts in the pits or the track if permitted. hold the car by the wing, and go full throttle. this draws alot of current, so use moderation with this technique. i usually take a lap when i check in and i'm ready to go.
feel your tires after the race. that will tell you alot about what's going on. they should feel dry, but tacky. gooey is too much. you can tell by where your traction comes in your run. it should start 1-2 laps in if you've not burned out, and last through the race.
