they are wiping off the pieces of concrete/asphalt, sand, and pieces of loose rubber that the sticky tires pick up after heating em up (if you watch NHRA top fuel races they do the same thing for the same reason) it does actually help some with traction. also the VHT on the track sticks to the tires and picks up unwanted stuff too

one of the hard parts of runnin that car is finding tracks that spray the whole track and not just to 100' or half track

no problem. most cars it doesn't but with that much power and that soft of tires it does, also every little bit helps...if ya wanna see more just search wild rat racing on youtube. there's alot of video's from through the years with dif sizes of engines, dif transmissions along with dif settings, dif things done to the engines, rear end swaps and ratio changes, dif nitromethane mixtures, ect, ect, ect.... lol
