Clean your garage and race queen… regularly!

Here’s an excellent example of why you need to clean your queen (or kind if you’re a girl).

2004 gallardo

2004 Gallardo

My personal car is a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo in a bright orange. This was my first dream car I bought after working for a long time. It has bout 32K miles on it and it’s a 6 speed automatic (I was too impatient to find a 6 speed gated manual), but I love it. Having it now for over 6 months I have learned the importance of keeping cars that are very bright in their tip top shape. Apart from cleaning my car outside, the inside demanded an equal amount of attention.

After reading some shop vac reviews, I clearly have made a decision to get a Vacmaster wall mounted shop vac to help with my interior. With a combination of awesome chemicals that get rid of some stains in the carpet and leather seats, I can safely say it’s the best shop vac I have ever used in my cars. *Prior to this car I had a Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 with over 100K miles.. talk about a step up right? haha!

Anyway, my schedule is to keep it cleaner so than ever before because I WILL take it to the drag strip to let it rip. (Shortly after I install a Twin Turbo Kit on it.)

Why Drag Race with a CLEAN running engine?

The sheer importance of a clean running engine is so crucial, that we have seen numerous engines simply blow up just feet from the starting line. Worse yet, some don’t even make it a foot before you see the hood just get shattered into pieces and white smoke pours from under the bonnet. This is popularly known due to engine neglect with complete ignoring of doing routine maintenance. Maintenance such as oil changes, liquid flushes and even, fuel system cleaning procedures. The latter is as easy as dumping a concentrated amount of specific cleaner and really make the fuel lines sparkle.

The most recommended fuel system cleaner by experts in 2015 is… (below)

Here’s what you do: You purchase a bottle of Royal Purple Max Clean fuel injector cleaner & pour the whole bottle into the gas tank. You can use a cleaning kit to feed the liquid through the injectors, and if you do that you’ll receive the best dose of the cleaner. It’s really the way it is mean to. Next up, you just close the gas cap and walla… let the engine run the fuel down with the cleaner. You’ll see a major improvement. Usually the best rated fuel system cleaners can be found here.

Usually what the next thing you have to do, is make sure all the other parts of the vehicle are running just fine. Lastly, you need to make sure the interior of the car is clean as it makes the 2nd biggest difference.
