So, you just had fun tearing your RC across the track or your favorite bash site. It’s now filthy and you want to clean it. What to do?
There are some people who are anal about cleaning like I am. There are also those who do want to clean as often as it takes too much time. Cleaning is a choice and it is not mandatory as it is your kit and yours to do what you feel. However, top pros will tear down their kit after every race, or bash period, as it is a good practice to get into. If for nothing else, have a clean RC means that you take care of it, inspect it, and know that when you pull it off the shelf it will work. Cleaning is not just removing dirt off of the chassis. It is inspecting for worn parts, broken or cracked parts, missing parts, and extreme wear.
The following are just the basics and general guidelines. It is up to yourself, the user, to adopt the procedures that you feel is necessary.
