has anybody tried Mud Off or simular brands to keep the mud and dirt off of their paint. Or any other tricks that work good?

We use diesal and baby oil. They both work very good.

mud off works GREAT!!! I have tried baby oil, it leaves a nasty residue that is very hard to get off. I know its a little spendy, but you get what you pay for!!

I think baby oil costs as much as muf off.?
I use the mud off, I have a real hard time with the idea of hosing down my race car with fuel before a race. Plus the diesel ruins my paint finish and decals.

hey wam24u I take pride in my car & so do my sponsors!!! I want to keep my car as clean as I can because of the money my sponsors pay me to have their name visible on my car!There is a reason they want to sponsor me, & visibility is one of them!!!

I agree. The sponsors want their names on good lookin cars as well as winning cars. And I have to say that the bigger reason, for me at least, for using the mud off is not really to make the car look nice on the track, (its dirt track racin) is to spray in hard to reach areas (scraping mud) so the mud won't stick to the car. Its a weight issue. Mud is heavy and it adds up quick. Weigh your clean car and then weigh it after packing or hotlapping. Think about it you spend all winter shaving 30, 40, 50 pounds off, then load up 100 pounds in hotlaps.
