Only problem with Armor All is that it contains water and we all know what water does .

well use sparingly and blow it off good when you are done polishing... seems to work alright

thank you guys I think I am going to go with denatured alcohol and simple green, the denatured alcohol was kind of high for a gallon but I guess not if you figure that you are diluting it down by half with the simple green.

I usually use more SG than Denat - 60/40 and have used 70/30 too, but don't like that as well as 60/40.

just dont use it on your painted shell.. save some mild soap for that,, the mix will cut right through the paint.

For regular cleaning I use Pledge Clean & Shine Orange. You can spray on and brush,blow and wipe. Works on all surfaces and does a great job. Safe for plastic...bodies etc..

Hey everyone, I have been mixing simple green in a 5 gallon water jug, the ones you see in your office. 2 cups of simple green, the rest water. At lowes they this http://www.cpocampbellhausfeld.com/a...rs/at1226.html Hook it up to the compressor, stick it in the bucket/water cooler jug, and its like power washing your rc car. Dry everything off and WD40 everything. It works awesome. Tires, bodies, wings, everything. Works awesome.

using water does not seem like a good idea to me and are you taking all of your electronics and motor out?
