I clean the bearing areas with a toothbrush, and I use a radio box so I really can't address the receiver cleaning issue. However, for my other vehicles it doesn't get that dirty, but when I do clean I just use a toothbrush there as well. If I want to do a more thorough job in those areas, then after the first pass with a dry brush, I'll spray the brush with the Motul Motowash and scrub it a little.

For your arms and such, you don't need to pre-wash before using Motowash, nor do you need to wash the Motowash off. It's one-stop cleaning.

A+

Also - I try not to use compressed air to clean my shocks. I did one time and when I rebuilt the shocks I was trying to figure out why they were so pressurized. Then I remembered the air compressor. LOL!

Another way to look at this is by the droop screw adjustment. The hex-end is on the top and the oval shape on the set screw is on the bottom and is over the droop screw hole on the chassis. You can also refer to the sway bar and shock mounts. In all three cases it can only be one way. It's just like a Lego instruction sheet.

A tip for when you build the diffs. Make sure you use a new tip on the hex driver or if the one you have is even slightly worn you can grind it a little shorter with a dermal cutoff wheel or sanding drum. I rounded off the first screw I tried to install and didn't have any of the hpi screws, so I ground the tip back and all of the rest of the screws installed easily with no problems.

This past saturday was a higher competition club race at my local track. Had tq rounds 1 and 2 and in round 3 was beat out by 2 seconds. Start 2nd and finish 2nd in the Main. I was able to beat a fast small sponsored tekno driver and was able to beat the guy who usually always win with his 1.0 scte.
