i under stand your drama with concrete, we had the same problem. We ended up putting a product called Boral surface coat over the entire track.
Is the surface dusty or glazed.
If the surface is dusty wash it down and apply a product called Bond Crete at a rate of 10 to 1 (10 gal of water to 1 gal of bond crete) apply at least twice, this should help.

Paint the concrete with water proofing coats or boral surface coats.

Make sure you run a higher ride height if it has the seams with the black crap in between. They rarely create a smooth transition from slab to slab.
Just a little "fix", in the condition of you using RP30, maybe JACO GREEN is an alternative, i guess!
