Just clean it with electric motor cleaner periodically and lubricate the bushings with a little oil after cleaning it.

Yeah, bash the shit out of it and chuck it away.

Seriously. Don't waste your time with maintenance on a sports tuned. They don't last very long and performance wise it doesn't make any noticeable difference if you give them the utmost attention or don't care about them. A little clean with buggy spray and lube with some thin oil and that's about all it's worth.

You can do a lot more than that but it is not worth it.
