When cleaning the RC truck, make sure it’s any chemical components don’t drop in your RC truck electric parts and bearing. Generally, you need these components like as paint brush, toothbrush, cloth, cleaning agent (soap, detergent, spray, granules etc.) lubricating oil. As a cleaning agent I love Simple Green. Why simple green?  Because Simple green is Nontoxic and biodegradable.

When the driving session is over, you should clean your RC truck. Because when dirt is fresh you can remove it very easily from your RC truck plastic parts. First of all, you should switch off your power, then unplugged your battery line and take off it.

Using lubricating oil for mechanical parts prolongs. My favorite lubricating oil name is 3-IN-ONE Multipurpose Oil. Since 1894, 3-IN-ONE ‘s multi-purpose drip oil has been a trusted tool. it has used by professional tradesmen and do-it-yourselfers to lubricate moving parts, penetrate rust, clean and protect tools, and much more.
