Default Mud sticking to tires

Anybody got any tricks for reducing the mud sticking to tires? One of my local tracks is rediculous right now. Back in my motocross days we used non-stick cooking sprays like Pam. Haven't tried it yet in R/C.

Is the track being watered? If so don't water so much. If its just muddy because of the weather nothing you can do as far as I know. Pledge works to make dirt and clay easier to blow off.

We found JConcepts Flipouts worked the best at the local tracks here on the more damp days. The moist dirt still sticks to them, but not as bad as most other tread patterns.

Check out the youtube videos on Rustoleum's Neverwet. I have yet to try it on tires, but I've put it on the transmission case, and suspension arms.

Pam works, I've used Silicone spray too (tires & bottom of chassis). Key is an open tread tire. Most of the current "soft dirt" tires are still too busy with knobs and edges. Find a few pairs of Losi Ifmar studs for those rainy days and don't be afraid to clip the outer row of knobs off to make them more forgiving in the ruts that will form.

Our track stays soft and sticky for weeks at a time . These have worked really well when the clay is heavy wet and sticky . They dont load up , dont wear out , and are only 16.00 bucks. Not a race tire , but hey, race tires suck in the wet mud....

Never use Pan or whatever.

Its makes for less grip and that's all.
Better to
switch to slicks and the mud will stop sticking .

Slicks are faster then thread when they are working , so take advantage of the conditions when clay cakes up on the tires...
