To me waxing is a ritual...means the next day I'm riding...love those 2 hours in garage with a beer. And yes it does make a difference on flats.

Rub on wax does work, just not well. It's good for about 1 run and that's it. And that is if you cork the rub on wax after the rub.

Does your friend have an extruded base? Those don't really need waxing. It doesn't hold wax well either way. An unwaxed extruded base will be faster than an unwaxed sintered base.

What I can't stand is a sintered base with no wax. It is frustratingly slow.

I stopped having my RSX oil changed since 110k mi, it has 170k mi now and the damn thing still keeps on running. Sure I need to put in a quart here and there, but I want it to die so the wife would let me buy another car.
