Personaly, I take off the tires and remove the motor then just wash it in the sink using the wand, soap and a toothbrush to get off the hard stuff. After it's clean I use a air compressor to dry off most of the water and some WD-40 to keep out the rust.

Throw um in the washer. Don't bother with the delicate setting, Slash's are tough.

Just take a shower and bring it with you, and practice some k-turns while in there or something.
