Default Exhaust/ tire dirt problems?? Experts come here!

So I have noticed while running my savage that the oil trailing from the exhaust pipe causes dirt and "oily mud" to build up on the inside half of my rear tire... Have any of you nitro offroad gods ever noticed this one "dirty" tire cause weird or unpredictable handling?

Put a stinger (the little rubber thing) on the end of the exhaust so you can angle the smoke down into the ground instead of directly onto your tires. Not really sure on how the Savage is set-up but that should atleast help the problem.

My left rear tires are always covered with this sticky oily residue too.. A properly tuned engine is just going to be that way..

Cool thanks... I was just wondering if you guys noticed it on your race rigs since you can't really tell if that slipery residue makes difference on a savage...
