i pull the motor, radio tray and fuel tank spray it heavily with simple green and use an air compressor, then take the diffs n shocks off and rebuild them if needed, then re assembly, ONCE YOU GET IT CLEAN BEFORE YOU MOUNT YOUR ELEC. SPRAY IT WITH WD-40 ARE ARMOR ALL, IT WILL MAKE THE NEXT CLEAN UP EASY

Cans of degreaser are your friend!

Firstly i use the compressor to blow off all the loose dirt from the car, then start tearing it down and cleaning with the engine first. Remove clutch, head, back plate, sleeve, piston/rod and then slide crank out. Before cleaning anything i like to check for any abnormal wear marks and check head button/sleeve/piston to see how the tune is. Start cleaning with degreaser starting with case, head, button, crank, sleeve, piston/rod removing all carbon like a fresh engine. I then measure the crank pin, rod bush and sleeve for size and note them in an excel spreadsheet that i have dated and with how much fuel has been run through at that present time, and note anything abnormal. Then re-assemble oiling all the necessary parts (i use an after run oil as the lube). Then move onto clutch. Pull all shoes off and clean flywheel and bell with degreaser. Rotate pins to different shoes and hole locations on flywheel (losi 4 shoe), re-assemble shoes to flywheel. Measure shoes for wear, note in spreadsheet of size.

Next i pull radio tray out and all i do to it is a quick wipe and a blow out. Next is remove rear clip from chassis, then remove front clip from chassis. Remove fuel tank and centre diff.

Then i spray the chassis with degreaser and use a toothbrush to loosen the dirt, spray again with degreaser and blow dry with compressor. Next is same process for fuel tank and centre diff (remove brake disks before spraying of course).

Then i put the centre diff, fuel tank and radio tray back on the chassis. Next i move onto either rear or front clip. Shocks off, diff out. Check diff for anything abnormal. All fine spray with degreaser, brush with toothbrush and then dry with compressor, if signs of wear pull diff down. I then degrease/dry shocks, and then pull caps to check fluid, top up/replace as necesary. Re-assemble clip and re-lube joints/pins as necessary.

Same process as above for both clips.

Screw both clips back onto chassis. Clean and re-oil air filter. Install motor and pipe. Clean body under the garden hose, dry and re-fit and im done!

I do that after every race meet. Usually take 2-3days spending couple hours on it at a time. Bit longer if i need to order parts to replace anything broken
