Hey Guys,

If you want to make your own "sauce" try 3 parts trans fluid, 1 part diesel fuel and 1 part mineral spirits. Super sauce, I use it on my 1/5 scale car.

Auto trans fluid, mineral spirits is a cleaner/thinner that you can get at a paint store or walmart.

Very interesting reading. foam Indoors- Gojo without the pumice. Just cleans your tires and opens the pores.wipe it off any your reay.
foam out doors- use coppertone 40 (the white stuff). apply - let it sit for 20 minutes or so and wipe off.both of these have been used for over 30years pf racing.Then there is my special formula from the old days that i can not tell you.
for rubber tires-Find someone that races gokarts and as them what they use. I had someone make some special stuff that would put the heat back into the tires and extend the tire wear of the tires.Old tires that would not gripe in the corners were making that noise new tires make in the corners.

Default Full/Half?

i read from a few of you guys (by the way thank you all for the information you are sharing) saying full on rear and half on front, could you define these terms for me?


Thanks in advance...

apply tire prep fully across the rear tire tread and only the inside half of the front tires.
