Default Anybody use mx chain wax?

I've tried a chain lube before, to coat my buggy, didn't like it. I don't have compressor to haul to track so I'm trying a better brand of chain wax to coat my buggy. I'm trying to keep buildup of dirt to a minimum. After spraying do you let it sit up like a mx chain or do you wipe it down?
Thanks.

Kal Gard contact cleaner and prep n shine really works good. You throw on somre prep n shione before race day and after day the compressor knocks most dirt off plastic and re spray use a lil brush and like new again.

I use motocross Chain Wax on my CVDs. It keeps them lubed and doesnt collect dust like grease. Chain lube does collect dust and i do not recomend it. Wax is the way to go for keeping your drive train smooth.

Get Silkolene Pro Prep or Maxima SC1 to keep mud from packing up. Both are a silicone based protectant, and unless wiped off, they will collect dust.

Chain Lube is always sticky and collects dust and dirt. needs to be cleaned off and reaplied oftenly.
http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/pr...-OZ/?id=106231 I do not remcomend using this on CVD's or drive train parts.

I recomend using Chain Wax. Once dry, less the 10 min, It doesnt collect dust or dirt. It just wears off and you simply reaply more. The link below is what i use and recomend.

I ride alot of motocross and found Chain lude works awesome on chains that are abused by being drug threw mud and sand. One day i put it on my CVD's and Diff pinion and ring gears and have used it ever since. I do not remomend using it on the bottom of a chassis to keep clean or what not. just on drive parts that need lube.

Thanks man. What I have that I've been using on dirtbike is chain wax. No silicone paraffin base.
Thanks for replies.
