Lighter fluid (Zippo, Ronsonol, etc)

But, as several have stated... no need to be ultra-clean. Disassemble, wipe stuff off with a paper towel or rag, and reassemble and fill.

naptha works great but on the mugens you guys need to pull the outdrives and regrease them to keep from seizing on the spur/ringgear.

Varsol doesn't work near as fast as the Naptha does. I use Varsol in my shop as a degreaser, and it does work, but Naptha cuts through the oil in way less time.

Actually, I don't think WD-40 is so bad. Here's a little study, using various fluids to test their effect on o-rings.

I take my diffs completly apart move the orings aside and stick everything else in brake cleaner. Let them dry and reassemble and put back together.

Take diffs apart, let the old fluid drain, pour new fluid in! Do it after every raceday or weekend.

I knew I wasn't the only one who does that.
Never had a problem and it's so easy.
