Rubber build up at the track

Whats your solution for rubber build up when you hit the track? I used to use the blue tape, but in photos it looks like crap. Any other solutions

I just orders some of that from Jegs, but wasn't sure if it would work well. I use Pan on everything, 4wheelers, tractors, steaks, ect..... didnt want to put in on the car, but its worth a try i guess.

I put on the zl1 splash guards and made some for the fronts. That helped a ton. I also have xpel clear guard on the gills and behind the rear wheels to protect the paint.

A few Weeks ago at the track this guy with a Lotus was using clear vehicle wrap that held up the whole day. It was amazing how dirty it got by the end.

Nice coating of Pledge and don't wipe it off... leaves your car lemony fresh! After the track it all washes off...

I had the guy who does my business cards print of some of these on a peel and stick plastic that I throw away after each night at the track. It protects from stone chips too and looks good.

WD40 will help remove. The new Mothers R3 Racing Rubber Remover works well too.

I did not like burnout guard and I hated the painters tape in pictures. I have not tried Pam or Pledge yet. The other one is to put a coat of wax and let it haze and not remove it until it's time to remove the rubber.

I like Allan's idea.
