Ok I hearing folks talking about keeping the rubber off the paint and removing it afterwards.

Here's what I use: BURNOUT GUARD by Geddex
http://www.geddex.net/wp/burnout-guard

I spray it on the quarterpanels and wing of the car before I do my first burnout. It dries clear as long as you don't spray too much on. Then afterwards just wash it off with a hose. It call comes off without issue.

Now if you forgot to spray it down with the guard first and now you're stuck with lots of rubber on your car or you missed a spot and now need to remove it the old fashioned way I use this product: R3 by Mothers.

I do have a pressure washer at home also that I use to removed rubber from the undercarriage parts. Just make sure you wash all the rubber bits into the lawn and off your driveway afterwards. I've left the bits out there and people walking on my driveway get it stuck to their shoes and walk into my house causing my Wife to see black smudges on the kitchen floor that are tough to get up.

I'll have to try some of that R3.
I have about 3 sets of slicks inside my rear wheelhousings.
It's like undercoating lol.

Put tire wet on before driving to the track. By the time you get there it will be covering the quarter. Rubber will land in the same spot for the most part and wont stick and should be easy to clean off.

I got the R3 from Jegs and the Geddex Burnout Guard from racingwarehouse.com

I know in the old days that FLP carried it also. Not sure if they still do.

I just spray WD-40 on the quarters.

Is that bad for the paint or clearcoat?

I just can't bring myself to spray WD-40 on my paint but according to the manufacturer it will not harm the paint at all. It will however remove any wax you might have on there. Seems to be safe.
