Although I see in the States you guys are using flexible pipes....I guess these would be better.....
A lot of the new tracks do use flexible pipes, definately easier on the cars that way.

Water should be fine on a 1/8 buggy, they go through everything else, why not drench them too

after you spray the car with water, cover the car with wd40 and use air compressor to blast off any extra oil! that should keeep it from rusting and less dust would get on the car!!
