Ya, iv been doing alot of reading and realizing hot wax is the way to go... hot wax it is..just one question then..i noticed you need to scrape all excess wax off after your done so do you need to scrape the old stuff off before you put new wax on or no? I'm assuming the only time scraping is needed is when u put new wax on?

Get a brass brush and run it lengthwise. that should get the old wax out. Or you can hot scrape, meaning that you scrape the wax off while it's still hot. Also you can get base cleaner but it's not essential.

Check out this thread for everything you need to know about waxing. Follow the video's that Snowolf put up and you should be good to go.

And yea rub on wax=taking your money and spreading it around the snow.
