Default Cleaning electronics

When i clean my buggy / truggy after a race i remove the radio tray & use a little water with de natured alcohol , dip a toothbrush in it , then scrub the tray down & then blow it off . Just wondered if there is a better way . How do you clean yours ?

that sounds like a bad idea to me. Just get a good soft brush and brush the dirt off the servos and radio tray, Nothing more. Open your reciever box, unplug your servos and battery and blow your reciever and the terminals and your whole reciever box with a air compressor.

Even a small amount of water will glitch your electronics. I learned the hard way. A good brush should clean the tray up real nice anyway.
