Evo_Uk;

NOT a very good Idea.

The compounds in the Polish will stay in the tiny pores of the Copper and cause poor electrical conduction and burning of the Com and Brushes.

Buy/use a Fiberglass 'Com Stick/Pen" to clean any light burning on the Brushes or Com. Otherwise, a rebuild is in order.

yeah polish is bad for the motor i would just do what popsracer said with a fiberglass stick and i would also just use some motor spray to clean the motor.
