    Cleaning the T-Maxx

    Any Ideas on how to effectivly clean my maxx, without tearing it apart. Thats what Ive been doing. A buddy of mine says that he uses Castrol Super Clean, and a toothbrush, but I noticed that all his anodizing is coming off (blue stuff on the towel he was using to dry it off with) Ive tried the alcohol, the nitro wash, etc. but I cant seem to get it cleaned, even w/ compressed air. Guess what i trying to say is this. My poor screw holes are getting worn out from always taking it apart. Im not lazy, just looking for a better solution for cleaning. Sorry such a long post.

    Kiss my Maxx!!

    I spray the parts that have a LOT of grime and oilly residue with degreeser and let it sit for a while then blow it off with the air compresser, then for the litter stuff I just use rubbing alchohal in a spray bottle ( because it will evaporate quickly if it gets on the electronics), then blow it off too.
    P.S. For all those concours competition, if you want to know the BEST tire shine in the world let me know (P.M.). It is like 100 better than real tire shine!!
    All people want to do is discus me...
    So that must mean I'm discusting...
    But its just me, I just obsene...

    Replace your screws with Hex and you will be much happier as for they do not strip nearly as easy, and much faster to take apart.
    I take my T-Maxx apart, probably way to much.

    Does anyone find that these things are more fun than a person is really allowed to have?

    Have too much fun out there.

    i own a nitro rustler and i use wd-40 as a cleaner
    i soak the truck with the reciever and servos out of it, and let it sit for ten minutes or so while my compressor comes up to pressure... then i have a special blowgun which has a really fine tip and blows things clean real fast
    i have the compressor set for 150PSI
    the wd-40 does leave a residue, but it evaporates overnight
    also, the wd40 doesnt attack the electrionics.. but removing the stuff is a safty precaution

    no, i dont own a t-maxx, but i hope my method of cleaning can help someone else
    All work and no play makes AJ a dull boy...(the money is nice though...)
    Perfection is not the result of luck; It comes from hard work and practice
