I belong to a club that doesn't allow any type of lubricant. We have in the past periodically looked at the wheels on winning cars to see if they have been lubricated. We run about 10 or so different classes and will be making a point to try thoroughly checking the wheels on the top 3 finishers as well as maybe 2 random cars, hoping to eliminate the possibility of someone bending the rules. Does anyone have any tips on how to go about checking the wheels and axles, for say graphite?
We've tried Q-tips, very bright light, magnify glass, compressed air, and who knows what else.
We have had a few instances in the past and there is a penalty for it if you're caught. It's just not tolerated. So if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thank you!
