Huh? I assumed this Simple Green that you guys talk about is a degreaser ie: spray, brush, soak and rinse off

some guys above said they are rinsing and blowing out with air....?

A good little tip i found out is to put some denatured alcohol in a spray bottle and use it to clean around the glowplug before taking it out. Just stick the nozzle in there and spray out till it is dirt free then you don't need to worry about getting dirt in the engine when removing the plug.

Wayne where do you get the SC1 online? Ive got a new car coming for the new year and I dont want to use anything but SC1 on it.

That stuff costs more but its worth it. Its silicone based so it has no ill effects on the car and it makes your car non stick like teflon so the car wont even get near as dirty. Ive seen others at the track using it and it makes me extremely jealous.

Its far better than WD40 or Pledge go as far as its non stick qualities.

I've recently been using spray on engine degreaser ($2 from the $2 shop!).

Dry paintbrush and comped air to remove as much loose dirt as possible
Spray degreaser all over, leave for 2-3
Comped air to dry car down.
WD40 bearings

The degreaser is basically a very potent detrergent and seems to evaporate off with the comped air. It makes plastics look brand new.

I have used simple green and wd40 since i started racing, it works just fine. I have even soaked my muddy car in the bathtub, blew it out, wiped it dry with clean towel..Inspect bearings, and back together she went. Never had a rusty screw or bearing. Just my .02.. Also, the SC-1 works well..buddy of mine uses it on his kids dirt bikes, and makes them look brand new each time

water does not cause rust if its blown out and the metal is protected.. with something like wd 40.. i dont understand how people dont get it? the metal is coated with wd40.. gotten dirty..cleaned off.. and recoated. where does the rust come in?
