I noticed all stinger damage ceased when I drove a slower smoother line. Driving slower is not always bad. If you are slower but more consistent and do not break your car you will finish and win mains. Every A-main or B-main I run in start swith 12 people and only 5-8 finish. Most of the reason people drop out is because they are pushing too hard and break their car.
I hear you G8! I definitely have to slow down and work on running a smoother line. I will admit I do get carried away alot and basically end up against the wall. I have gotten better at avoiding hard hits and I am down to minor brushes against the wall now but still not a good thing to be running faster than what I can handle. Thanks for the input bud!

I use the anti-freeze/crock pot method too. I also use carbon-off, but I like the crock pot method better. It gets the inside clean too.
