    Best way to clean the xo1

    Hey everyone! Just got the xo1 out for the first spring run here in Minnesota! After about a half hour, the thing is pretty filthy! I was wondering what is the best way to clean up the xo1! Any input appreciated! I'll get some pics up here in a blast. I bought it during tower's Christmas discount sale of 110$ off. So this is my first time running it!

    After every session I blast off the road grime with an air compressor, then a wipe down with simple green...

    So i did the air compressor part. But how do you clean with simple green. Does the motor esc need to be removed? Thanks for the response!

    I use my shop vac as I don't have a compressor. You may have to remove the motor and front and rear suspension to really get the dirt and rocks out. Also remove the front foam bumper. Rocks like to hide under there.

    I spray the solution on and then wipe it down. I haven't had to remove the ESC, but the motor does get removed from time to time.
