    So I played R&M this weekend on a pin I don't normally play and was scoring in the millions, whereas normally I'm not even close. I could see the ball wasn't sliding or moving normally. Later I saw them cleaning the playfield and asked what they were using. She said Naptha to clean lol. I said that's not a good idea, but she wasn't having it. Moral of story? Strip all wax off and get new high scores!

    Quoted from Bamaro:

    Not to get too technical and at the risk of restating points made earlier, 100% carnauba is very hard and could never be applied to a pinball machine. Commercial products are softened by the addition of solvents, petroleum distillates and oils.

    Yet when the solvent evaporates if its 100% carnauba it will be rock hard.

    The key is 100% carnauba.
