I don`t know if you guys in the states get this problem , it might just be because of our track surfaces here in Oz but my left rear wheel keeps getting packed with clay(inside) causing major tire shake and damage to the calliper ,
Has anyone had this problem and if so how was it fixed .

just wondering if guys are turning left?
your problem however is easy and cheap to solve just put what we call a "mud plug"inside the wheel.it is just a piece of thick foam rubber cut out to fit tightly inside the wheel. this is benefical in two ways it keeps the mud out of the wheel and helps to build heat in tires quicker. i always run them in all four wheels during short races,like heats.

Yes mate we do turn left !!,
We also run "mud plugs" but I'm talking about the inside of the LR its getting jammed between the rim and caliper .
Thanks anyway .

sorry kiwi, i did realize what you actualy meant later on that night. however the only way we have found to aleast reduse the amount of mud is to polish the back of the wheel with never dull polish and before the heats spray the inside of the wheel with mixture of baby oil and water it seems to work well for us

I would suggest waxing and spraying your wheels inside. Spray they at the track-with WD-40. It really does help.
