    Default another product I would like to see

    we drag races have been battling the dreaded rear quarter panel tire rubber removal dilema.
    Once on there its a pain to remove and can ruin your paint by scrubbing it off.
    Ive tried vaseline before burnouts but vaseline on the track is a no no.
    gold eagle help plz!!!!!

    im not sure if it will.
    but if someone ever develops something itll sell like crazy!
    the VHT at the track comes off easily but that darn rubber is hard as heck to get off without scratching the paint.
    I do know DOGG sheild works great on snowblower chutes!!!!

    what's VHT? I know my friends used some blue painter's tape before they race and take it off after.

    VHT is a traction compound sprayed on the track. It's almost like glue, if you've ever walked on it,it can pull your shoes off if not laced tight.

    tried it and still the tire rubber sticks and is hard to come off.
    only thing i used in the past that works but is expensive is 3M tearoffs
    (clear plastic sheets that are torn off)

    I make sure to keep behind the rear wheels freshly waxed. Then after Saturday, I use an el cheapo $100 power washer on the rubber. From about 10-12" away, and at an angle, 90% of it comes off before I have to actually touch the car. The remaining little specs, I remove with Goo-Gone sprayed onto a micro fiber towel. Then re-wax. It's the best system I have come up with.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.
