[QUOTE=Integra;7888703]thinking about it, If i can get a cheap flight again i will.

Cant seem to get a cheap enough flight for the end of the month




wears thing's out ? Do you ever drive your car ?




that's pretty interesting, I know alot of guys dont mind a little rusty water in their compressor due to the Fine Mist that aids in cleaning the car's but this throws a whole new spin on it. [/QUOTE Maybe I didnt understand what you where saying about rusty water in their compressor do to a fine mist.

Over time with cycling over and over, compressors build up moisture in the tank and if left unchecked for a little while will turn into Rusty water and when Spraying through a Thin tip nozzle a thin stream of water come out and sorta helps with cleaning to a point.....you said something about spraying the compressor which i didn't understand.

Brian A was suggesting that wand attachment that you can add a chemical and spray with the pressure which i thought was interesting.

PS fix your quote.

Thanks for the heads up. I think I will leave it alone or it could get confusing to others reading this.

WHY does everyone use WATER? Water = RUST!

Simple green, blow off with AIR! Repeat IF needed, only IF needed.

Been doing it THIS way for over 15 years. NO PROBLEMS, period!

MY 2 cents worth!

Default Dirtfighter

The best way I think is like everyone says take it apart keep it together whatever your style I have been testing a full line of products made here in Orange County and they will be released soon like by the end of September.They carry it all from degreaser ,silicone spray,teflon based oil for the hinge pins,oil filter oil,and a motor conditioning oil.The products are solid and they are developed with all of us in mind and a full line of brushes also I will keep you posted and send a link on where to buy it on line .The website is going up in two weeks or so I was told as I am going to use the products that I have been testing for a year . Dirtfighter .....Kaulin Stay Fast!

here is the solution to cleaning, the best 7 bucks you ever spent guaranteed!!!!!!! Mix up your favorite cleaning solution, hook up the compressor and its on! Your rc has never been cleaner. After your done blow it off and apply your Kalgard and its just like new again. I saw a friend with this last weekend and it cut my cleaning time drastically.

I have that, works great

And every other track i have raced at in Australia

Cant be good near bearings though

Might be worthwild investing in an evaprotive dryer unit if the clubs can afford it.. look around for a second hand unit perhaps?
