TitleNo Paint Here

CategorySpeed Tips

CommentDo not paint behind the wheel, where it contacts the car body. Paint here will add friction and slow the car down. Place a round sticker here during painting to prevent this. Remove the sticker after painting and clean the area with paint thinner to remove any glue residue. Rub graphite on this area before applying wheels.
