Some of those cans give off a wet residue. Not only air but if held wrong, moisture comes out.

Lenny F blew up his esc last winter by using canned air. It wasn't funny but then as I think about it yes it was to.

Yeah not a smart move but many of drivers still use the stuff. Its a live n learn method of keeping your kart clean. A brush is much safer to me.

I'll have to use a brush or blow my electronic it sounds like. I found a couple of cheap brushes at a local dollar store. They seem to do just fine. Do you guys wash off your wheels then or brush them off to.

Use a brush there a dime a dozen at your dollar store. Ok they cost a dollar not a dime.

Ok so I get the brush concept but what about the tires. Is a mild soap and water ok to use?

Stick with Goop it cleans your tires and condition if you wipe clean.

I stopped by the store today but all they had was the scented Goop. Why can't you use scented? They had orange with extra cleaning power.

Your answer is Alcohol Its in anything scented and kills foam tires. You must use unscented and nothing else.

Anyone have a easy method to mounting a bumper to a new non drilled front end? I also posted this in another thread. I really want to finish this up tonight and TERC is already closed.

You mentioned a template? We have a template I'm emailing you right after this post. Just cut it out and tape to the bumper, drill your holes as on the template and your set. Be sure the size you printed the template on is correct. Use a ruler to make sure. It should be a true 3 inches.

I managed by using a clear stencil and marking the holes. Odd looking bumper but it serves its purpose.
