RE: HPI Savage XL Powered by Gasoline Engine Release Date?

alternative to nitro cleaner

I am going to seal my engine. I have everything but nitro cleaner in a can. Is there something else such as mineral spirits that I can use to clean up everything while I have it apart?

I want to try some different setups in my XL.

I have some 30k and some 50k on the way.
