If you notice the shiny tires, it was common to wipe the tires with the used gear lube from the gear change usually done before the feature. Within a couple laps the dirt would remove the shine.|
|03.24.10||3Wide||Never did figure out if the putting the old gear oil on the tires was to make them look better for feature time... or to make it less likely for the tire to tear if it rubbed up against somebody's nerf bar or the wall, or if it was just an easy way to get rid of some of the old gear oil... (Probably all of the above!)|
