Question(s) for you - what do you folks do as a post-run inspection/cleaning and for maintenance? I saw the thread on "Washing a Dirty Summit" but I'd like to go a little more in-depth than that.
I read in the manual about servicing the diffs, motor, etc. so many runs (can't recall specifics) but wanted to get some real-world advice/tips.
What I currently do: After I'm done for the day/night I blow off the crud/dust (from body/chassis/componentry/tires, etc. with the air compressor blow-gun (using a rubber-tipped nozzle, works good for nudging any clingy clay/dirt off without damaging parts). That works pretty good for the most part as I tend to play in dry areas, so it's very little mud, mostly rocks/gravel/dust stuck in the various nooks and crannies.
After that I check all the linkages/rotating parts for damage/binding and see if anything needs to be repaired/replaced. That's it so far. I've only had the Summit for a week or so but I'm probably getting close to needing to clean the motor. Do you folks remove the motor to clean/lube it or just give it a good spray with Electric Motor Cleaner? What about the other serviceable areas, any tips?
I appreciate any and all input, thank you in advance!
