    Drag Radial Rubber?

    I'm just wondering what you guys do for the rubber that flings on to the rear bumper cover. I had a big problem with this before it was painted and now that its painted I dont want it sticking to the rear bumper now.

    Check Jegs or Summit. They have an aerosol spray that you can spray on the areas and keep the rubber from sticking. It won't harm the paint.

    A couple of cars at the Summer Blast used the blue painters tape behind their wheels.

    You know, I just looked in both catalogs and couldn't find it. Try silicone spray instead. A good heavy coating should do it. I guess I don't do heavy enough burnouts because I never get that rubbery accumulation I see on a lot of the cars.

    This works well I do not know if it will harm your paint though.

    I've always used PAM or WD40. With the PAM, just be sure to wipe it down after your runs or it gets gummy.

    Here's a good link to what others use:

    Thanks for the link Mike....I need to get some of that stuff. Took me about an hour to get the rubber off after the Shootout. Now the fenders are covered again, and I dread washing the car because it's such a mess.
