My tires were so caked with mud it felt like I was driving on ice. I didn't even bother with my 4th run in the afternoon.

So are there any tricks/tips for cleaning the car afterwards? I hosed off the wheel wells and underbody, and washed the rest but I still worry about mud and stuff in the hard to reach places.

I'm looking forward to next season!
First. Get a pressure washer and wash the undercarriage (hopefully, with the car on jack stands).

Second, if you want more traction, get snow tires. I have a spare set of 16" snow tires that would work great for rallycross and this winter.

PM if you want to talk about price.

Also, invest on a skid plate and mud flaps whenever you have a chance if you want to keep playing in the dirt.
