yeah, i dunno if you know or not, i sold my revo and everything revo related with it, have no interest in monster trucks anymore, and i still have the t and e maxx if i want to bash lol all truggy now, and i'm going up tomorrow to pickup my new Slash 4x4 PE, so i'll be running those to classes this spring..

anyway, back to your ?,,
it's realy simple, get the regular heavy duty oven cleaner, just make sure you get the stuff in the Yellow can, the other (citrus smelling- better for the enviorment crap) wont do a thing.

wear rubber gloves, take yer anodized aluminum outside, i usaly set it on the sidewalk or something, and just spray it down realy good, then let it soak for a good 15 mins, i usaly spray more on if it evaporates in that time.
then just simply take the water hose and off goes the color!
if you have trouble getting it all off (it tends to be hard to get off in corners and tighter spots) just use a peice of scotch brite while it's soaking.

if it doesnt all come off, spray it again and repeat the process!, also, scotch brite the whole peice with a little more oven cleaner to get the "haze" off of it.
probably could polish it to if you had that much time lol

My wife signed the kids up for soccer...SOCCER???? My boy wanted to wrestle and play football...she's killing me! I believe all of the games will be on Saturday. It looks like most of the off-road races are on Sunday so I'm ok with it for now.

Won't hurt to get some spray inside the pipe. Just spray it out with water and if you don't want to wait for it to dry just stick it in the oven at 175-200 for a while so the water can evaporate. Or before you clean the pipe, plug the stinger and pressure nipple so water and oven cleaner can't get inside.

Why would it harm the inside of a tuned pipe? Can oven cleaner actually break down the weld? Your more likely to harm the pipe in a crash.
