    No brake dust... even after a track day!

    So I decided to give this Armor All brake dust repellent a try after reading about it here. Some say it works, other say it doesn't. Had a track day today so I decided to spray it on my track wheels and see how it works. Usually after 1 session my wheels are covered in dust. At the end of the day, my wheels looked like this:

    The black marks are the areas that I missed while spraying the stuff on the wheels. Looks like it actually works!

    If you want a great wheel cleaner, Sonax is awesome ...one of the only products is truly spray on, let it sit a bit (turns blood red), very little work with a sponge or brush, and rinse it off.

    Wasn't a fan of Hot Rims since it ate the clear on my OZ Racing wheels that I was using as track wheels on my Audi A4. Re-read the bottle, OEM safe. Ugh.
