I find that T-Cut works pretty well, this is what they use for restoring damaged paintwork on cars.

It has something to do with the oils that it contains. When you get grease on your hands try some new motor oil on them before you try soap,it dilutes the grease.

this famous driver didnt say he use WD40 for his engine !

I would not recommend others to use something that is with unknown effect to high performance engines. but I will give it a try to spray WD40 on pipe before run.

fuel is good enuff to clean my pipe, used Autosol before and prolong use of this polishing cream will make your pipe thinner and thinner every time as it eats away your pipe!

Default WD-40

Notice the can in the background... Alberto Picco uses it to keep his ride looking new.

If I were sponsored, I would not waste time cleaning the pipe, but rather spend time in giving feedback to r/d team or just improve my driving skills.

Perhaps, he is sponsored by WD-40? Unlimited supply of WD-40, keep cleaning it...

Don't get me wrong guys. We should always take good care of our car. It's our hobby. Same thing as I take good care of my golf clubs. My wife asked why I always keep the club head shine and clean; hence the word "GOLF"

With the KY Gel, my engine would say:

EXIT only, no ENTRANCE! DO NOT ENTER, WRONG WAY.
