Tommy,
Your source is correct. No need to polish anything. Carbon is your friend,

Any fuel with lots of castor is going to leave a carbon buildup no matter how you tune it.

The polish is good for one thing. Buffing up a lightly pitted head if you get some detonation.

not if you're using 50% VP racing nitro methane fuel for drag racing. Motors are spotless after a whole season!


road racing? no need polish/clean, you wont notice the difference.

Drag racing? yes, polish everything.
