Default Ultrasonic cleaners?

I am getting back into nitro racing after 4 years. I have an old V1 RRR WC and it has many aftermarket parts. My question is with cleaning and restoring this chassis and OS TZ.12. I am want to buy an ultrasonic cleaner, but don't know if it's worth it. Does anyone here have any experience with them?

Indeed, I do have an ultrasonic cleaner and it works wonders.
Basicly I use either citric acid, which is available in powder form for cooking, or green dish wash liquid, with warm water.

Make sure to only clean one kind of metal at the same time.
I got a cheap one on ebay for like 20GBP inc. shipping.

For my bearings I have a simple Team Titan tool with a vibrator function. I fill it with WD40 and works very well.
