Best Fallout Remover to take out rust spots

I have been wondering which fallout remover is best so I tested Carpro TRIX, Carpro Iron X Paste and Riccardo Iron Maiden. I got some interesting results. All the products stink, some more than others!!!! They all seem to work a little differently. I did shoot a video so if anyone is interested here you go

If you're diligent and remove the rust spots regularly (I try to every wash/once a week) I found a clay bar works great - in particular I use Mother's Clay 2.0 foam pad thingy which is like an infinitely (kinda) reusable "clay bar". I try to use it during every wash, doing one panel at a time, "claying" each panel while still soapy.

If they've been on awhile and are stubborn I just use a minor polish and it takes them off like nothing, just gotta re-wax the area since you'll be taking that off too.

I've actually had good results with McGuires Ultimate Compound. It takes a little muscle, but removes those little rust specs
