Hey dmartin,

Can I know what kind of dry lube they are using? Which part of the universals do you lubricate them?

I haven't tried this yet but some of the pro's at my track do it. It's good for at least 2 secs off your lap time. =P

Another question, what makes simple green the choice of cleaner with RC? Why not other house hold cleaners similar? I really don't by the cleaning stuff for my house so not sure if it's a special blend of chems not harmful to the rollers but what makes it different from pine-sol, 409, etc...? I've always just gone with it due to it being the cleaner of choice I see at the tracks.

Simple Green has a dual purpose. It also softens and treats tires.

Simple green use to be considered non harmful to all surfaces until recently Boeing released that it made aluminum brittle, so an alum safe simple great was released. But for plastic it works well. I have been using the stuff from up-grade Rc their wash and prep shine are great for the buggy and the body shine leaves the body's smooth and slick.
