There is so little call for motor spray now.
Yeah unless you want to clean chassis/electronics components for mounting with double sided tape, or clean bearings or cvd's for rebuilds, or clean shock parts after removing the o-rings, or clean transmissions for rebuilds, or cleaning the threads of screws so the loctite works better, or cleaning tire beads before gluing, or cleaning lexan bodies for stickers, or if you want to clean the left over flux on a fresh solder joint. Yeah your right motor spray has almost no use now, I will admit that brushless has made my motor spray usage go down, it is still a catch all solvent that is perfect for this hobby. The only time I won't have a can of motor spray in my r/c stuff is when I run out and have to get another can.
As was stated earlier the CRC QD electrical contact cleaner is exactly the same as the hobby brand motor sprays and is safe on all r/c car parts, including Lexan (which non-chlorinated brake parts cleaner is not safe on). It can be found at most auto parts stores, so if I am elbow deep in a rebuild and it is post LHS hours, I swing by the local auto parts store to pick up a can.
