Spray on some Plexus and wipe off with soft cloth

I just use elbow grease, or tape-up the front before getting on the track. A good coating of wax makes a big difference, too.

Rubbing some wax over the black (rubber) mark takes it off without much elbow grease.

...also, any adhesive remover, like 'Goof Off'. apply the remover to your rag, then hold the rag over the rubber streaks, allowing time for the chemical to break down the rubber. Then, wipes right off. Downside - if you've waxed your finish, it also removes the wax with the rubber. Then, apply fresh wax.

Surprised this hasn't been mentioned but this is what you want. No tricks, no gimicks. This stuff works!

I have been reading this on numerous car forums and it's a hot seller. My friend has used it on his M3 and said it just wiped off. He couldn't believe it. If anything he was aggrevated that he hadn't heard of this before. No more hurt thumbs, no more sore fingers, just spray and wipe!

Clear bra the car before putting it on the track, then Plexus cleans it up easily. I don't think I'd put Plexus on normal paint. I also wouldn't track a street car without a clearbra unless I didn't care about the paint; I've seen horribly pitted paint jobs after a day or two on the track.
