    Compressed air and a stiff brush works great to get the crude off. I then use furniture polish like Pledge that I get from the .99 cent store to give it a shine and it helps the dirt to not stick. Some use WD40.
    Carb cleaner works to clean diffs and WD 40 works good also.

    I use a air compressor for a quick clean. Otherwise, i totally take apart the truck and scrub everything down with scrubbing bubbles.

    Parma makes a buggy body for the 1/16 Revo, 1/16 Slash, and 1/10th Slash. Here's a link for the 1/16th Revo http://www.shopatron.com/products/pr...0237/137.0.1.1

    I have an original 68 Meyers Manx (full size ) that I've been working on. Took me years to even find one. Put a 2017cc race motor with a close ratio tranny. It's gona Fly .
