    Just curious how you have all kept the fender wells clean after doing an epic burnout? I know from past experience that it's a mess and can actually melt to the fender well and never come off. Is there something out there to put on it so the rubber wont stick?

    You can also use a quick detailing spray if you don't have a can of Pam handy

    According to the Dept. of Transportation, the easiest way to avoid excessive buildup of rubber in and around wheelwells is to 'purchase only non-Hellcat models'...who knew?!
