These blatant plugs brought to you by...

It wouldn't seem so sad and/or pathetic if you hadn't had to dig up a six month old thread just to plug your product.

I really could care less if you use it or not. I was offering a suggestion because you can buy it for $2.00 a can versus the 5 or 6 dollars from others.

Thanks for your insight though. It's refreshing to know that some people would rather bash an idea than consider it.

I'm not sure why some folks on here are saying that it hurts their plastics on their car ? Why are you spraying it on your car anyway,and a body? there isn't any motor spray that is safe on a body,geez guys c'mon.it's MOTOR cleaner,not car cleaner.

Actually most current motor cleaners are safe for cleaning lexan bodies. The Wearever stuff from Advance autoparts and the Wurth contact cleaner are also safe on lexan.

Some brake cleaners have some lacquer thinner or acetone in them. These chemicals cause a crystalization reaction in lexan that makes it super brittle.

No need to consider.. already have a product that works fine and is a bit cheaper. If you think that what you did isn't tacky, go with it.. life's too short.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what is tacky about helping others out. I'm personally not selling it to them so that can't be considered tacky.

I would hope that if someone worked for a company that had a product that worked and could save me money, that they would share that info with the racing community.

I agree...nothing tacky here. If WurthUSA is tacky so am I, EA Motors, DC Motors, Losi, Xray, Associated and every other company that posts here trying to answer questions and help out racers.

After reading through the rest of his posts, I'm not real concerned about his opinion. I just wanted others to know that my original comment was to try and help. Listen, we all spend too much money on "toy" cars and if we can save a buck here and there than I think that is great. At my local track I hand out free cans of contact cleaner and solder because it is 2 things I can get and they actually work in this application.

I'm not trying to run the local hobby shops out of business but I've seen too many racers (especially young ones) spend all their money and when a part breaks, they have to go home or hope someone has one to give them. I guess my logic is the hobby shop can sell a $6 can of motor spray and the racer not use it because he now has no money for parts and he leaves or I can give them a can and they can buy what they need and keep running.

Did anyone find out what the brand of stuff is at Autozone or Oriely's? I had read to post a guy on here about it, but I imagine he get enough pm's as is and don't want to bother.
