    i always hit my vehicles after water use with wd40. if you dont it will be a major issue very quickly. also every now and then tearing a vehicle down to rebuild it is a good idea.

    Depending on how wet i got the mill (and how dirty the water was)i would probably take the rotor out, clean everything with denatured alcohol and bearing oil for the 2 bearings. This feigao mill dosen't have a end bell cover so i used a RPM sticker (any sticker or a piece of tape will work) over the rear bearing to help protect the rear bearing and rotor shaft from small debris.

    Will the decals that are supposed to be placed on the lexan bodies be alright with the heat of the motor?

    You can try them. Worst that can happen is the heat will disolve the glue on the back of the sticker and it will fall off.
    I clean my mini Revo by driving it through puddles. lol Wouldn't recomend it but I am getting a new motor/esc so not too fussed. I replaced all the screws with stainless ones so no issues really.

    Mill is short for engine or motor.

    Yeah, but confusing. Why not just call it a motor like 99.9999% on the board ?
