    I'd like to thank DD4H and everyone on the forum for their advice and info. My son and I built a rail rider ladder car this year and he easily won his den and pack grand championship. We used DD4H black ice wheel polish and graphite. It was the fastest car I've ever seen! He averaged 2.888 second for 6 runs on a 42' aluminum Besttrack. He can't wait for districts. Thanks guys!

    I was running 1.5 gram wheels and grooved axles. I polished the axles and did a final polish with pledge. I polished the inner wheel hubs with the black ice kit from DD4H. Lubed with zero friction graphite from DD4H. One question I have is after 6 runs do I need to pull the wheels off and reapply the pledge, or just put more graphite in. Districts is 3 or 4 runs.
