    Default Baby powder on tires

    Noticed six or seven teams at Charlotte putting baby powder on their tires as they were washing and buffing them. What does that do and i guess it passes a tire test?

    It acts as a natural lubricant.

    Like it was said it acts as a lubricant which enables the grooving iron to slide easier across the tire. I'm sure that it probably could show up in a tire test and if WRG felt the need to ruin your reputation and lable you a cheater they probably could.

    I use the baby powder when I buff my tires. I feel like it helps the grinder not to hang on the dry rubber and I feel like it keeps the rubber cooler and doesnt blister the rubber. Personally I dont think the baby powder would show in a tire test because its not liquid and doesnt soak in. When I was kart racing I used windex and it worked really well when buffing tires but I havent been brave enough to put it on late model tires because of testing.

    Maybe about 30-40 years ago. Asbestos is outlawed from everything.

    There is ongoing litigation about the powder. Many sources of talc are naturally contaminated with asbestos. There are recent reports of powder testing positive.
    Droop isn't the problem.

    Yep. When some dipsh!t talks like he knows what he is talking about about cancer and someoneís lifespan, especially when that persons father died from a rare cancer, youíll tend to get some sh!tty responses. But keep on Dr Quinn.

    "A jury in St. Louis, Mo., has awarded nearly $4.7 billion US in total damages to 22 women and their families after they claimed asbestos in Johnson & Johnson talcum powder contributed to their ovarian cancer, in the first case against the company that focused on asbestos in the powder."
