If you don't, they will go rusty. I would dry the entire car with a hair dryer first. Remove the ball bearings and clean them with motor spray. Apply bearing lube.

When you have raced in the rain and cleaned the car a tiny bit let the engine idle on the starterbox. Take off the airfilter, give half throttle and drop some drops of afterrun oil in the carburator. The engine will run a bit difficult and produce a lot of smoke. Do this at least 15 seconds and than throw in a big splash of aftrrun, the engine will stall. Take out the engine and put him in a bag, it ready to store.

i know there not but u can use them in the rain i know how to dry a car im not thick.I was just wondering what the correct oil or lube to use after i dry it.I can ask as many questions as possible everyone needs to learn something.Also people do race in the wet thats why they sell damp foam sets.Anyway a forum is to learn things that people dont know.

Do not see it in that way, take the advise that comes with it. Asking questions is good, finding the answers by yourself is better and you will learn more.

I dont think anyone is treating you like crap, maybe a little harsh on a couple of the responses, but I think what every one is trying to say is, there are many solutions to some of the question that have been asked.
If you do a search for a question, you could get 4, 5, 6, or even more responses and they could all differ a little on the answer. But by doing this search, you would be able to read other guys results, and see what answer could work best for you.
I have yet to see a question on any of the forums that have not been answered yet, and usually they all have multiple answers.You are really limiting your responses to a couple of days, as the questions eventually fall way down on the forums lists, sometimes ten or more pages back.
Everyone has questions, and thats what the forums are all about. Try the search, and see if it hepls you somewhat, if not, then ask away.
