Anyone out there have any insight on Mudd Off or anything that works similar?

I used Mudd Off last season, but was curious what others are using and if they work better?

On the tracks that we go to we usally wax the car first. If it is say a friday show we spray it down on thursday nite let it soak in it will not leave a film that will gather dust mind you. Spary it again with mudd off friday morning let it dry. Them before wheel pack we use mineral oil it is the same as baby oil just not the smell. Used that on stocks Sprints and anything in between.

Baby oil is the ticket! I tried Mudd Off and I call it smear off! Baby oil is the best thing I've ever used! I wax my car several times a season with Turtle Wax Express shine and with the baby oil nothing sticks and it smells good too! The only bad thing about it is the look I get from the cashier at the Dollar General Store but when I explain what I use it for ya just get that " Yeah Right" look from them! Isn't it fun?

I'm lazy and cheap, so I use the cheapest spray can of furniture wax that the dollar store's discount box has. Seems the cheaper the stuff is the better it works, must be the "filler" product is what dose the trick.

We always keep are car waxed and we use tire black its a clear silicone and it works very well. I think it is better than baby oil but it is a little more money.

Tire Black? You mean like the Armor All stuff? Is that the foam spray on stuff?

And you guys that are talking about baby oil. Do you mix it or apply it at 100%?

I'd like to know that too. Anything that will make it easier to clean up afterwards. This clay we race on sticks like glue!!

I was racing quads and I read in a tips section to use STP Tire Care and it did not work in the least. Sounds like mineral oil would be the best choice.

Hey guys sorry it took so long to get back too you. Well the stuff we use is called Tire Wet we get it at walmart and auto zone for like 4.50 a bottle and it lasts us like 4 races with doing tires too. We too have very sticky and staining clay. When we used baby oil it makes tires look like sh-- and draws alot of dust this tire wet washes off good and makes it easy to clean and keep mudd off. You guys have fun because we are headed to the track tonite for a race. YAHOOOOOOOOOOOO lol Steve Dupree

I never hav eunderstood these "mud off" discussions, Mudd Off works good and cost $7 for a qt. bottle which makes 3 gallons of solution.
One bottle will almost last all year racing one nite a week. Its cheap and it works, it doesnt stink or get you oily and sticky.......

I am amazed at how many times this discussion comes up. Muddoff is, by far, the best product to remove mud from your car. All you have to do is follow the directions. If you don't let it "set up" and you attack the mud the micro second the car pulls in the its they you are not using it correctly. Let the car sit for 7-10 minutes, and if you applied it properly you will notice the mud actually start to fall off the car. "sixwillwin" was right on with his comment. My $7.00 bottle of mudoff lasted 18 races last season and we ran saturday night, still have a 1/4 of a bottle left. Lets see, $7.00 for Muddoff per season or $20.00 (one bottle a night for 20 or say races?) a season for baby oil (that will ruin the adhesive on your expensive decals, collect dust like a magnet, and is very hard to wipe off). I guess racers always have to make things harder for themselves when the easy way is right in front of them.

Baby oil without mixing. Oil doesnt really like mixing with most anything anyway. I also dont like to run hotlaps. Mainly because we are always the first class to enter the track and it tends to turn into "mudlaps" instead of really seeing how the car handles. We spend that time warming up the car and running the valves usually.
