Default cleaning up

i just got back from north carolina with my new nitro stampede, and its a mess. me and my cousin drove our trucks around my uncles farm and through puddles and mud and wet grass and sand and everything, and even after spraying it down with some engine degreaser spray its still a mess....i got almost all the grass out but now theres just dirt and sand and that awful red mud from down south just all over the place....can i spray it down with a hose? will it be bad for the servos? plz reply as soon as you can cause i want to have it nice and clean before noon today so i can take it with me in my friends car and not get it dirty...thxlol

Whatever you do, remove the servos, battery, and receiver.

come on thats part of the fun.
i take mine apart on a regular basis and give it a thorough cleaning.
i take the servos/rx out even more often and spray it down with denatured alcohol and use a tooth brush...then cover the carb and hose it down.

you will thank yourself when you have to change a part and its not a greasy dirty mess.

One nice feature of my Nitro Mt is a removable radio tray. All of the electronics pop right off. It makes cleaning easy.
