we used a mix of 30 wt oil and water in a spray bottle then wiped it on like wax. it does help some, it comes off easier.

diluted baby oil works pretty good for us.
sometimes use wd40 but dust really likes that stuff
pledge works good to just like waxing the car..

All depends upon the track you race on. A muddy track WD 40 or mudd off. A track that has some dust in it we use pledge or cheap furniture wax. On plastic body parts we use the spray on tire foam cleaner.

I dont know if anybody has tried tis but when we are at the car wash we always give it a good coat of the wax to finish rinsing it. Then just leave it and down rinse it off. At least for us and our mud it seems to clean up easier the next time. We just try not to get much on the tires.

Mudd off has worked the best here. I've tried mixing water and baby oil, but it didn't work too well. Other ideas may work, but I wouldn't want to be in a car that's coated with a flammable unless you have better luck than I do.

I use mudd X if the track is not very muddy and baby oil if it is a mud hole.

Wash and full hand wax every Sunday. I usually spend about 6 hours doing it. It looks good though.

I usually wash my car with Simple Green. After washing I put a SMALL coat of it in the problem areas. Like above and behind the rear tires. It seems to help the mud release easier.

Go to your nearest bulk oil dealer and buy 5 gallons of water soluble oil.It'll cost you between $40-50.Add 1qt.to 2 gallons of water and wall-ahh!you have mudoff for a cheap price.I'm going on my second season on 5 gallons!
