You have just taken your new RC car out to run and it is now dirty – how do you clean it? Here’s how to clean your RC car and keep everything running smoothly.
How To Clean Your RC Car
Even after one run, you will see a buildup of dirt and grime around the shocks, electronic components, and drivetrain components. Here are a few things that you will need to get your RC car all cleaned up:
- A homeowner’s air compressor
- Standard quality bristle paint brush
- A simple Amonia-free degreaser cleaner like Windex or Formula 409
- Microfiber Cloths
Step One: Remove Body, Wheels & Tires
First, remove the body as you will wash that later, as well as the wheels and tires so that you can get to the bearings.
Step Two: Use Air Compressor To Blow Dirt Off The Chassis
Next, set your air compressor to around 100 – 120 PSI and begin to blow off the dirt off your chassis. Once you have blown the dirt off both the top and bottom of the chassis, it is time to use the brush to reach the tiny nooks and crannies.
Step Three: Wipe It Down With A Degreaser
The last step on how to clean your RC car is to wipe it down with a good degreaser. I never like to spray the degreaser directly onto the chassis, instead I prefer to spray the degreaser on a microfiber cloth and use it to wipe down the car.
Using the degreaser will get your plastics looking almost as good as new, and will keep your RC car looking great in the long run.
Lastly, proceed to wipe down the body with the degreaser.
Cleaning your RC car regularly will help to keep your RC car looking great and performing well in the long run. This is a quick and fast way to get your RC looking great!
