I think most of us change bearings LONG before that would be an issue.

But why run the gauntlet, WD40 is not a good cleaner anyway, simple green works much better and is a safer option.

So clean up the rig after raceday then spray the pledge on? Then after the cleanup next time will be easier?

Lemon pledge for me also....I also use it to clean my pit table. Just keep it out of sight of the wife, she may make you use it inside.
