Default Dirty Fun

Went out with a buddy saturday to play with the toys, had a blast.



Can't seem to get this head squared away. Have re-tapped the holes, and red-threadlocked them, but I still got some smoke around the head. Guess I'll just run it hot until the .26 blows. I got it used, so not sure how much/hard it was run.

Had a blast though. Broke my Storm first off, guess I landed just wrong, blew out the bulkhead.

Shhh, dont' tell the wife...but I cleaned it in the kitchen sink.

First soaked it in simple green for about 20 minutes, then just used the sink sprayer with hot water and it just came right off.

If you do it this way, be sure and run the garbage disposal all the time or put a strainer over the drain, otherwise small rocks will get between the cutter and the housing and jam it up. (Don't ask how I found this out)

Once clean respray the truck in wd-40 and let it sit.
It really helps in gettingthe dirt off the next time.

Well I have my reciever balloned, and my servos have been dipped. So I just put a dab of grease around where the servo arm connects and just hose away. Probably notthe best idea, but so far it has worked fine. I try not to spray directly at the servos.

Yep, I leave everything on. simple green makes the engine look like brand new. I just put a rubber cap on the exhaust and zip tie a plastic bad over the air filter (I use motor saver air filters)

A hair dryer will dry it up real fast and keep stuff from rusting.
Also be sure and wd-40 pretty much all the bearings, even the clutch bell can take a little squirt from the outside. They need this even if you don't get them wet just because of the moisture from the mud.

Q-tips?! Geez caveman, you should move up in the technology, such as toothbrushes and such. I normally use toothbrushes, air compressor, and some denatured alcohol. But mines sitting in a pool of dried mud right now, better clean it soon, got me a new Fantom on the way for me Maxx!
