Looks great.

Maybe you can answer a question for me. What is the best way to remove tire compound/marks left from flying tread off of R compound tires and brake pieces after a DE event. I don’t wrap my car in plastic but it seems that after following cars on Hoosier tires you get a bit of “black crap” from the tires and breaks on the car. I don’t want to mess the clear coat up and obviously not the paint. Any ideas?
