While you have the sail and Antal batten cars & intermediate cars off the track, now is an excellent time for some preventive care.
- - Put a little Joy liquid into a container of water
and use a toothbrush and the liquid to clean the fiber insert in each car. Salt
air and atmospheric dust gets onto the surface of the fiber insert and inhibits the car from sliding up and down the track easily.
- - Additionally, I found some "Teflon lubricant spray" and sprayed each car's fiber insert. Now my cars really zip up and down the track.
