    I also just use different brushes and a compressor always dry and lube up bearings. Good to go.

    I just picked up a bottle of 'simple green' and cleaned my rig today. It had dust and some light caked on stuff no bad but needed a cleaning from the last time out.

    'Simple Green' is the best stuff that I have used thus far.

    FYI. If you have some older tires that are a little hard this stuff will soften up them to.

    Now I just got to figure out why I payed an $0.13 environmental fee on a product that is biodegradable and the bottle is 100% recyclable. :eek:

    Silicone oil (new or used from shocks)and a paint brush. Lighter oil wieghts work better. It cleans, lubricates and protects agains rust. It makes everything nice and shiney.


    I don't use wd40. It washes away oil and usually causes dirt to seep in to the bearings. (gritty bearings with the grease washed out are bad!) It doesn't leave enough oil behind to protect things from wear or rusting either, especially for long storage in basements or garages. It's not good for you either.

    buy a spray bottle of simple green,then a 1 cap full of wd 40 into the simple green turn it up side down every time you use it in a cool area,spray your rc vechicle over a garbage can let it sit for about 10-15 min,brush off the dirt,then get compressed air nozzle and blow it clean(haha) the oil will help eliminate the water in the product so no rusty bearings or steel parts.this is what i use.

    I use a series of brushes. Soft for the loose stuff, hard for the caked on stuff.
    A firm toothbrush will do wonders.

    I never use any liquid of any kind. And compressed air around bearings is no good, one wrong blow and you've got a bearing packed full of dirt.
