Pretty sure Hudy do. But just go down to a hardware or paint shop and buy the same thing for a 5th of the price.

avoid the $1 stores, the bristles are too flimsy, definitely go for home depot, lowes or your local hardware store. They should have just a bit of stiffness to them to get some of that stuck on dirt off, well most of it. And definitely buy one of the smaller ones to get into those tighter places, works wonders.

What spray cleaners does everyone use? I need to buy some. Any suggestions?

From what I've seen most RC cleaning brushes are pretty much just a paint brush anyway, only difference is the higher price tag on anything RC related.
My paint brushes work fine.

Ty uses a purdy paint brush. You can get cheaper but they don't last and could cost you more in the end.

Just looked up that Maxima SC1 and seems interesting enough. It helps prevent buildup of mud and dirt like the descriptions state?

Not really, but it does slightly aid cleaning and the plastic doesn't stain with dirt.

They are worth the money, mine are going on 3 years old and are good as new with a good wash with dish soap.

I will shop for you on Ebay, paint them all the same, put some RC stickers on them, lacquer them up and sell you them for a high markup if that makes you feel happy. Like they all said, yes a set might be nice and Hudy does sell them, but again do you want to pay close to $100 USD for a set of brushes that you could get for about $30 from Home Depot or even less from Ebay? Just look for stiff bristle brushes, get a toothbrush you don't use any longer and some simple green, and you are good to go, also get some endust and an air compressor
