Yes, that's me.....so does it works for you?
Magic Cleaner is just a household cleaning solution, can get it at all minimarts and supermarket. The Green colour ones works great.

Dunno man...I put the stuff in the diff yesterday but no time to try. Seems that Simple Green cuts the grease better from what I hear. The other day I saw that one of the buggies in Tai Sing had all it's electronics and center diff removed and it was spotless. The rest of the stuff were in some bucket and not cleaned yet. So you just splash the chassis with water and Magic Cleaner then air dry??? I scared rust.

No, first spray magic cleaner, leave it for about 15mins, then you spray it with water. Next I use compressed air to dry it, and lastly spray WD40 or any spray oil on the metal parts to prevent rust, Armorall on the plastic parts .

Add some shims between them. Once you got it spin freely, then your problem is solved.

Seriously, I never though of using hairdryer before. But I think it's a great idea, and I think it's better to use those blower (can select with or without heating). Hmmmmm........I'll go buy one tommorrow.

Hey the Magic Cleaner works great!!! I was a bit scared that it would eat into the plastic but seems ok. Used the hairdryer without any problems. And sprayed with a good dose of WD40. Now ready for the weekend.

Hi guys, got a question to ask "again"

Can I connect a 6V lead acid batt to an EP motor? Will it damage the motor? I'm asking because I'm planning to use the lead acid batt to power motor lathe.

Thanks
