Default Any gun guys out there? Use Break-Free CLP?

I'm new to RC but big into shooting sports (mostly handguns).

Are any of you familiar with the product Break-Free CLP? This is the only product I use when cleaning my Glock and Sig. It cleans lubricates and protects - hence "CLP".

I just cleaned my entire RC car last night with WD40 and it left the whole car greasy and seems like its going to be a dirt magnet. CLP leaves a durable coating behind, not grease.

Have any of you tried this or have any recommendations when trying something like this out on the whole car?

I use CLP on all my weapons... never thought of R/C though. CLP breaks down carbon so I would be real careful what you put it on.

My question is why would you use WD-40 to clean your R/C ? Are you exp issues with rust or moisture ?

Just because you are a tool does not make you a mechanic.

+1

But, I do use Hoppes No. 9 to soak greasy diffs or sticky bearings in though

WD40 will dry eventually, but will still remain tacky enough to hold dust. I've used it a couple of times to make a clean chassis shiny, but I don't bother with it anymore. If you want to protect screws without disassembling them, you can give 'em a shot of WD40 or other product...then simply wipe everything down with paper towels. If you're concerned about moisture though, then there is likely some moisture below the screw head. It would be best to disassemble in this case. Once you have the screws, etc separated from the composites, then CLP could be used to clean 'em up.

I bought a second hand buggy that had surface rust on it.

I used it when I first started running nitro since I had alot of it around.
but now use simple green. just found simple green to be cheaper and also more handy to clean tires with.

I spray my stuff down with WD-40, then blast it all off with the air compressor at the track after running..

Is Simple Green better for that than WD-40?

Ha ha and I thought I was the only one. I bought several cans of Ballistol to clean my glocks. I have been using it on my cars steel components because I like how it leaves everything feeling slick. Doesnt attract any dust either.
