Odorless or not, stay away if it melts the plastic of your transmitter, removes lexan paint or needs to be kept in a metal can

Past few months I've been using gloves for cleaning. Been trying to keep stuff off my skin as much as possible.

Polyurethane tires are popular in slot car racing partially because of how chemically resistant they are - they're impossible to sauce. They work and you don't need to be a tire prep wizard to make them work. Have a governing body mandate a switch to rubber compounds that can't be sauced and the problem disappears.

I also just wear gloves.

We're indoor onroad racing. It's nice to have clean hands for the trophy girls.

I'd still suggest gloves to handle those East Columbus girls. lmao
