    Simple Green

    Hey guys

    Just wondering if anyone knows where to buy some of this stuff for cleaning my RC with since it is REAL dirty after a session at the track... I normally use degreaser with an air compressor but get a grimy/greasy residue and seen a **** load of people using simple green at the track... I also know that there is like general cleaner etc but which one will suite RC the best because I know that there is a degreaser type of one from what I remember...

    SO WHERE DO I BUY IT

    Cheers
    Drive it like you stole it =)

    Can confirm Bunnings I saw it today.
    There is lots of different types I have simple green that is orange
    Most of the guys at the track use the concentrated one which is green(go figure)

    Might just get the all purpose one as I am guessing that is the one Bunnings will be selling, see how that goes and try figure out a place to buy the degreaser form one from

    yea i got the big jerrycan of concentrate

    tbh... it don't work for me !?

    tried several different dilutions from 1:1 to 1:20... it doesn't eat grease all that well
    (although i get to wash other things a lot greasier than my RCs)

    you're better off with the CT truckwash, or if greasy mess use the CT bilgepump degreaser

    Electrical cleaner is same as RC "motorspray" but they are solvents,
    not detergents (=wash grease with water).

    yup

    CT20 you just spray on & hose off, its just a bodywash;
    CT18 eats grease better if left to soak for 10mins

    but i was talking about the pink CT14 (i think)

    used to be called Engine Degreaser, then changed to Bilge Pump cleaner.
    It will strip off wax too if you leave it on shiny paintwork too long.

    There is a product called "Citratec" sold by a mob at Geebung Called Anchor Fasteners. A concentrated Citrus Cleaner which will do the job, 5 litre costs about $18 or $19.

    +1 for the CT20. You get it in a concentrate, so mix up a little batch in a spray bottle. Spray it on, leave for 1 to 2 minutes, then hose off and your RC will look like new!

    AND - it leaves a protective wax coating

    many moons ago (early 90's) I remember seeing truck wash take the shine off some paintwork.. these days though, its not as harsh.
    Still though, you do see warning stickers on the side of trucks that are worn/ fading away from overuse or hard rubbing with it.

    As the others have said, CT20.. the wax content within it helps with applying it as well.

    Be careful with regular Simple Green. It can fade anodizing.

    Use the new Extreme Simple Green. It works awesome on RCs. http://www.simplegreen.com/products_extreme_motor.php
