I see that Chevy uses turtle wax brand. How about the rest of you? I’ve only used the red block that comes with some dremel kits. I imagine it’s not the best.
I have used a few different brands but haven't seen any difference in them.
Well...if I told ya....and I'd hate to have to do that :)
Thanks. I guess if I can’t afford fte’s, I won’t be able to compete in most races anyway.
Many use Turtle Wax products and McGuire s as well
It's more axel prep with non FTE wheels/axels, but one of my fastest mods has mainline axels...a Country Club Muscle that has won two titles this year...and MDG Racing doesn't use FTE packages either and builds fast cars.
Yeah, I was just gonna buy a known brand and go with it anyway. I just wasn’t sure how sub par the dremel block was by comparison. And it’s almost gone. I believe what you’re saying about fte vs. a well done car. It’s just annoying that the bay prices aren’t so great on fte’s. And knowing which ones are the ideal axle width is difficult for a noob sometimes. I always bought cars to customize for show. I’d never heard of or even thought about modding to race until I stumbled upon this place while looking at customs.
I used some Brasso metal polish on non-FTE axles and I do notice a difference. I usually rub on with a rag and then buff with the Dremel.
I do notice a difference as well. I used my dremel and the red polishing block. I could take a new mainline car that had 30 stock cars in front of it and get it in the top 10 doing what I learned from all of you. And man, the graphite does wonders as well.
