Ah the never ending quest for more aerodynamic grip!
All aero designs will have a limit that is defined by balance.
You can't just keep shoving rear downforce on as I'm sure you're aware!
Also drag penalties are also an issue!

Check out an f1 car at Monza and Monaco!

If you can find BOLINK body wash that would work. I used to use it to clean up over-spray and mistakes when painting bodies. It doesn't Fog or cloud the lexan like a mixture of nail polish remover and alcohol can do. Just apply it to a Q-tip and start rubbing.

I did a Google search for it and it seems to be gone from the market, any leads?

Thanks!

I like Group C cars too. I'd love to see this:

Just look how beautiful this car is...
I wouldn't call the new Toyota LMP beautiful-cool looking maybe, but not beautiful. The early 1990's Group C TS010 - that was a beautiful racing car.

It looks like it may have been discontinued. There seems to be another one called Dynamite Body Cleaner, and it's supposed to do the same thing. I'd at least give it a try.

Well you dont need to max out the front, just enough front to ballance the rear downforce. also drag on RC circuit racing is negligible. Ive built diffusers for the rear of my f104w, a diffuser on the front wing and extended rear wing. And yes they work very well.

The Bolink Body Wash was the best but the Dynamite works well too...though if it has cured for awhile it might be better off trying to get someone to make headlight stickers for it...might be more expensive but a lot less hassle then trying to remove paint...touch up where too much was removed...and repainting headlights.

Yes the problem is that the paint has been on for a week or more. I tougth about the stikers, maybe it will become the racing shell

Anyone in SO-CA up for for Le Mans Racing this Saturday?

It shouldn't matter. The wash should work if it's the same formula as the old Bolink stuff. Hope that you can find something to figure it out. Otherwise, your next step is to cut out the area, re-form new lexan headlamps and a housing. Sucks for sure.
