Default Paragon electric motor bath

Anyone know what ever happen to this product? can it still be purchased? or is there a substitute for it? I like dipping my motors to clean them out.

Try rubbing alcohol...

With the advent of rebuildable motor's there was no longer a need for a motor-bath, hense the reason that paragon had to remove it from the market.

I guess the question would be, why would you want to "dip" your motor's to clean them (unless you are running non-rebuildable motors) - taking them apart only takes a few minutes, and it gives you a chance to look at all aspects of the motor such as com condition, brushes, bearings/bushings, etc.

Just my $0.02

There is a new product out from Baldwin racing concepts called power dip,and it works very well I generally will run a freshly built motor two heats then dip it and run it again for two more heats,they claim you can run with the power dip for more than that without a rebuild but I don't like to.Dipping your motors is still a good way to keep fresh motors without having to rebuild everytime,the reason you want to dip your motors is so as not to disturb the brush seating. http://baldwinracing.safeshopper.com/index.htm?976

Thanks for the info, and yes I have rebuildable motors, but I like to dip my motors inbetween heats, some times when you are running more then one class dipping is faster then tearing apart your motor
