the easiest way is to strip out your radio tray, motor and pipe. After you got that out soak the buggy with simple green for about 2 to 5 min. Wash off with garden hose and blow dry with air if you got it. Then a light mist of WD40. You end up with a new buggy everytime you clean

p.s got this idea fron another thread here on RCtech!

It was real easy to do. I applied the paint masks, painted the inside metallic black, then wait a short time for it to dry some then used a hobby knife to help remove them (so you don't mess any of the black up), painted the neon green and then sealed it with sprint white (helps make the neon green jump better).
Thanks

Unless you clean off the Wd all it does is attract more dirt next time out.....Im not a fan of the soaking with WD and blowing it off....imo that's the lazy man's way out....a good quality paint brush...a couple tooth brush's...and a bottle of simple green/alcohol mix is imo the best way to "clean" the plastic's....Wd leave's an Oily film that makes the dust stick from what ive seen.
