Default Lacquer thinner???

Has anyone tried Lacquer Thinner to clean bearings and diff parts? Definitely cannot use on plastics, but I found it worked very well when I used to run electric (run nitro now) It stinks to high heaven, so you have to store in a sealed container.......any thoughts?

Lacquer thinner works very well. Just make sure you get all the solvent out. Any solvent left behind will dilute any new grease applied to bearings after cleaning.

After electronics off and engine, hot water clean of, then simple green then let sit for 5 minutes, then wash of with hot water then air dry everything with air compressor.

Electronics I just use a damn cloth with some simple green and clean of with brush and wipe down.

Engine denatured alcohol wash down from the outside everything sealed, then blow out with compressor.

Car is clean All this is done in 30 minutes at the most.

Hard to reach areas use the cleaning gum so it saves you time otherwise I just use air compressor which is set on a very high pressure to blow things in out in tight areas.

In all honesty the air compressor is the key.

It's just a gum like play doh for kids that squeezes into tight areas and picks up dirt oil grit etc, the good thing about it is you just roll it in your hand and it cleans itself, it has a life expectancy usage wise, but it will be a while before it becomes useless, lets just say you get your monies worth.

Actually the cleaning gum is mainly used by onroad drivers, however does not stop you from using it on offroad just try to avoid the dirt by cleaning as much as you can.
