    How do you keep it clean?

    So I just took a flying leap into nitro with a Jato. I got it used and it is a little dirty and wanted to know what is the best and safest way to clean it. I am brand new to nitro, so I don't know what is good and what is bad! Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    buy a small air compressor and blow it off after rinsing with soapy water.

    If you don't have an air compressor a can of compressed air will do the job too.

    And a little bit of disassembling before cleaning also help.

    if you dont have a can of compressed air a blow dryer, if you dont have a blow dryer ...idk
    a damp rag is good too.

    dont get water on electronics, receiver, servo engine.
    dry as quickly as possible to avoid rust.
    i like to lube the wheel bearings with a drop of castrol GTX a drop in the engine wont hurt either

    you can use nitro force works really good to clean um you can buy them at your local hobby store and I like to put my truck and the sink and use the spray hose from the sink and just spray it all down and just let it dry and make sure don't turn on if any of the electronics are wet cause that will fry am but what's wrong I can't get wet as long as they don't have any power to them by their wet that will ruin them but long as a dry out before you turn them on they work just fine
