now that offseason is here..i dont race,just curious what does everyone use to clean their cars (especially dragsters)? im know a terry towel/cloth works great, but is there any specific brand cleaner? do yall use any special cleaner on headers, tires, & wheels? do you wipe them down throughout a race? me be some what of a clean car guy i think its an underrated/unoticed detail.
Soapy water on the headers and a wash cloth. Meguires quick detailer or Lucas slick mist on everything else, with Scott's blue shop towels

I essentially clean everything with Windex and the cheap micro fiber towels from the warehouse club. I then use Meguire's quick detailer or Speed shine from Geoits Garage and generally just a good soap and water on the wheels and tires.
Quik Detailer and a soft cloth on the body. Windex and an old bath towel for headers, valve covers, chassis, etc.
PLEXUS on lexan, water and micro fiber on headers, quick detailers with ceramic on bodies. Scrub and bubbles on most anything but window's.
Joe Gibbs speed clean on chassis/valve covers/headers. Spray on let sit for 30 seconds wipe off. Takes up hardened rubber grime and oil easily.

I have a couple similar to this. https://www.amazon.com/Chemica...a-451345273821&psc=1
I spray my dragster down with a bottle of soapy water and use the squeege to wipe it down and a clean soft rag to get the seams or streaks.

Like most we rarely wash the entire car. Just a spray detailer and microfiber at most. If yo have stainless headers and want them to look new again toilet bowel cleaner that contains Hydrochloric acid will have them looking brand new in a couple minutes. If they are the high temp silver coated Mothers aluminum polish will make them look new again.

Sometimes the car gets caught in a rain shower, I'll wipe it dry with a chamois.
