We do have indoor races here in MN. If I dont race I usually just clean her up, give a coat of spray lube like WD40 and wipe off the excess and set her on the shelf. I take my starterbox and run the battery dead then give it a full charge and put it away.

Outdoor off-road in the summer and indoor on-road in the winter

Mine has been disassembled (partial), cleaned, lubed and put away in a plastic tote ready to be re-assembled when we get word of an indoor track for winter or waiting till summer.
