    Keeping mud from sticking to everything in a moto.
    What works? I mean you can gain like 100 lbs of wet mud easily per moto.
    An old timer told me about diesel,
    another mentioned this stuff called "MudOff"
    What do they use on sprint/dirt cars to keep the mud etc from sticking?
    Any ideas???

    I've seen pantyhose stretched over panels on dirtbikes and lots of coarse foam stuffed into crevices.

    sprint cars use baby oil. cheap, works awesome, and is harmless to the car.

    diesel would be bad.

    just get baby oil and a spray bottle and your set. its the only way to keep mud off the rally car.

    Pam cooking oil spray stuff works good if the mud will dry up during the race. I've sprayed silicone in my fenders and on the radiator guards and the mud dosnt stick to much. Also Pam is a pain in the @ss to get off.

    WD-40 works great. Comes in a spray can making it easy to apply and it's inexpensive too.

    Aerosol spray wax (any brand, I just get the cheapest I can find) works well also. Not as cheap as baby oil though.

    Old, old post but I have an answer. I am friends with a dirt track team and frequently go to the races with them. We use stuff called mud off. Mix with water and spray from pesticide sprayer. Works amazing. Keeps most roost from sticking. Some mud still builds up above the rear wheels. But comes off easily.

    Last race we ran out, No Bueno!!! It took 20 min with a screw driver to get the mud off. The dirt track boys say it is 100x better than WD-40.

    I've tried baby oil, WD40, and Mudd off.
    Mudd off works the best.

    In Oklahoma mud racing is BIG. I used pam for anything that was painted, i.e. body. Brakes, wheels, rear end, etc. got doused with diesel. I used a $10.00 pump up sprayer filled with diesel.
