    Removing oil from slick

    I need some help. I had a transmission fluid leak and one rear slick sat in the oil puddle for a couple of days. How do I get the oil out of the slick so I can run it again?

    One guy I talked to claimed he uses brake clean on his. Doesn't damage the rubber. Any thoughts?

    Thanks, guys. A burnout it will be. Sounds like more fun than the brake clean idea anyways.
