great vid! how do you keep that cool white driving suit so clean? my son has a black one and it still looks filthy all the time.


You could also try an old racers trick, Aqua Net hair spray. The hair spray has the same chemicals as what dry cleaners use, it lifts dirt and grease off the fabric so that when you wash the ugly grease and grime go down the drain. Aqua Net hair spray is readily available anywhere and MUCH, much cheaper than the molecule stuff.


Also, great video. I like the camera angles and "real life" aspect of the clip.
BTW, we did a video for a local track some years ago, The producer kind of rushed me during the kart explanation part:

And just a shmeless plug for Arsonal Racing. I had bought most of all my karting needs from them and I am extremely pleased with all my purchases. My suit, gears chains, gloves, odds and ends are all top notch, and the prices and shipping were the best!

Great info chuck
Learn something new everyday.
Do you prespray the Aqua Net or spray it on the stain then wash?

Also there is one other great use for Aqua Net.
It is the best propellant to date I have found to launch potatoes from a "tater gun".

I don't use Aqua Net to pre treat, I use 3m scotch guard for that. Take a can of Aqua Net to the track and at the end of the day spray the soiled areas and spray again when you get home and try to wash that day.

Aqua-Net also works as an awesome propellant for the potato gun... Very explosive!

If your wifes hair has been tangled up in a ceiling fan because you used all of her hairspray to fuel a tatergun, you might be a redneck. Laughing
