If the track is soooo wet that the tires cake up bad and car comes off track with mud caked in tires then like no tire dope will do much and any tire should work that can hold onto some mud. I think for track it sounds like you run on you should try buggy grip or zip free if it's wet/tacky, if it's dry and dusty then don't use anything or maybe just motor spray. Usually the tire dopes don't work well, usually are worse, if there's a dust layer on top of the dirt in race line.

Sounds like perfect conditions for slicks....
When a track is so wet as this, I would at least try the slicks & put the diesel on....

Aaron, I'm assuming this is the Hobbytown?world?whatever? outdoor track up there.. Simple Green to clean and store, and if you need more for the race try some buggy grip. Also an important thing to remember is that the foam determines how much the carcus will deform and trap material. A stiffer foam will keep the pins opened up more.

Simple green is a cleaning fluid. You can pick it up at grocery stores.

It's simple and it's green.
