I've been screwing around with slots once again. :wink3:

... And have found that Mill's :friends: tire lotion works FANTASTIC :wizard: on bringing old, dried-out tires that can not be replaced back to life :hang3: ...

As the rear tires on this Riggen Semi Truck trailer that are pressed on. I put a couple of coats on them and cleaned them after each coat with lighter fluid and they are nice and soft once again. :yahoo:

Dave, glad to see you again my friend, and if you need mor Mill's Magic, just let me know and I will send you some up. The stuff works great to restore tires and any rubber to like new condition, and can be used multiple times to bring the rubber back. Also, when breaking in a new track, it helps foam tires to lay down a nice layer of rubber . Anyone with a home track can ask Dennis Samson how well the lotion worked on laying down traction on his track.

This is a special Tire Lotion, Blue Magic, that I make. It restores foam rubber, whether it is treated or untreated, as long as they are not complete rocks. Many top racers are using this, such as Jay Kisling, Mike Iles, Sano Dave, and this does not eat away bodies and paint, you only need to rub it thorougly on, wait 10 seconds, then wipe completely off.

Tim, I did not "Steal Anything ", I even made a batch for Barney of this new tire stuff and gave it to him. This is a unique formula that I worked on that is organic, works incredibly well, and started a long time ago in research after I had a conversation with Greg Gilbert and Chris Chikiras ( sorry Chris if I missed the spelling on your last name!) . I continued to work on this, just like the braid juice that I gave out at the Jail Door Deadman Enduro, the braid juice worked amazingly , even the wing car guys loved it because it does not allow the braid to burn .

This will soon be available for sale, but I have been sampling it to racers all over the country, and everyone has given me wonderful feedback, and Terry Schmid and John Gorski have been coming up with some cool names for me to name the product. I will be sending out some more samples to a few of the races coming up in Retro , so that more racers can try it. I sent samples out for all the guys at the Fall Brawl. Anyone needing more or more information, just send me a PM. WHEN YOUR TIRES NEED HELP, GRAB FOR THE BLUE MAGIC !

It even works good on drag tires! :good: I tried some last year when I was having trouble at the drag race portion of the Boola race. Mill rubbed some into my tires and next pass I ran 116.99 for top speed of the meet! Thanks Mill!

Tim, I did not need permission from anyone, I invented this myself. I also gave out lots to people who were in the racing circle at Dennis Samson's Pebblestone Raceway, and my Blue magic is different from what Barney had made. Also, Barney asked me to make a batch for him, which I did. Why would I do this if he already had his own ? Thankfully, the racers that I have given out samples to all love it and want more. Just wait, there is more innovation on the horizon, .........

Thanks Gary for the compliment, I know that it worked for several of the drag racers and wing car racers that I tried it on . To be able to run with great grip on the dragstrip with less rolling resistance is a big plus !

I never asked you to make any lotion for me Mill.... I asked (after you offered) if I could get food grade wintergreen from you and you said yes (but never did get me any) You then gave me some of your first "white magic" stuff but it was too oily and, like many I did not like it. Then you came out with the blue magic and I have asked but you have never gave me any yet.
Get your story straight Mill. I wish I had seen this BS sooner....

Barney, all I can say is , the Blue Magic is used by the top racers, such as Duran, Cukras, Tore, at Buena Park. Blue Magic is quite different from what you are calling Love Lotion, and racers all over the country are now using it, such as Ray Price, Howie, Rob Hanson, Greg VanPeenan , etc..... Haruki has it in Japan, and sorry if it bothers you, I will give you a sample when I see you at the Choti Race, I have samples for you to include with all the entries.... Just tried to help out the Choti Racers with a donation, do not see anyone else pitching in...

Mill the only thing that bothers me is you passing off this post:
""Also, Barney asked me to make a batch for him, which I did. Why would I do this if he already had his own ?"

Because it is not true. I have no problem with you making something to sell I'm sure it's good... just get your story right. I have no plans to make my own and have always given it out for free to anyone.
Make all you want, sell it or whatever Mill. I have never had plans to market the stuff I make.

I don't care who sells what to whom---but one thing is FOR SURE---Barney had his "love lotion" tire treatment for MONTHS before Mill ever came up with "blue magic"!! Dennis and I were using it in our home race tracks for a long time--- before March of 2011 when my track was installed at my house. FWIW

Tim, if you ever got it right, the first batch I made was for the GT-12 ,Eurosport guys , based on a conversation with Adam Kirschoffer, Greg Gilbert and Chris C. from up north. This was a year before we ever started racing at Dennis' . It was white then, and originally came from talking to these guys..... Now You Know .....

mill;
yes it did work good too,,its just i asked you at least 1/2dozen times for some of your tire stuff,and still waiting since
at least the ZIMMERMAN RACES,,,and never received any (i did offer to buy some), to me theyre both equal,tho the white creme(which is the only ive ever tried) was the only i ever saw,,,,,
and Barney gave me a bottle thats worked just fine for me.because "like you said"(the Blue Magic is used by the top racers, such as Duran, Cukras, Tore, at Buena Park.)guess im not one of those TOP BP RACERS to qualify for some.
