FEATURE _King of the Mud TIRES For muddy, wet conditions, you will want small pins and narrow wheels, if possible. And of course, softer compounds should be used. For extreme conditions, you can even narrow the entire wheel. You can do this by trimming the wheel and then cutting out a strip of rubber in the center of the tire, then gluing it back together again. If you’ve never done this before, you can learn from an experienced tire guru. Again, this should be used only in extreme mud/bog conditions. WD40 IS YOUR FRIEND Once you’ve completed all the waterproofing and taping, you can pretty much go crazy with the WD40 on the underside of the chassis and on the body. If your pit man uses WD on the car before your run, it will be much easier to clean. If your car gets transformed into a submarine during your race, you will also want to soak it in WD40 (after you’ve washed it off) to prevent everything from rusting. 60 WWW.VRCMAG.COM Nothing worse than that much wet clay!
