I have this wand that hooks up to my air compressor. It sucks in the cleaning solution and sprays it onto the truck I am cleaning. Works pretty good

Go to a parts store and ask for a siphon air nozzel, or cleaning air gun.

I used to have one of those parts cleaner air nozzels, worked great working on small engines, I bet it works quite well on those nasty hard to clean stinky ole nitro RC's lol!

Cleaning electrics is so much easier lol a 1.5 inch soft bristle paint brush and compressed air and done lol

I had a blast with my nitro's but dont miss all the hastle that went with them.

I do not remember. I will look in the owners manual today and see if I can find a website for you. I will also post a picture of it. It is very handy indeed

I know what you mean. Electric is so much nicer... Guess thats why I'm getting rid of my nitros ever so slowly..


Also, yeah, most automotive stores will sell those air compressors/components

Hey Razor here is a picture of my cleaning gun, as well as a link to get them on E- Bay for like $16. You can also get them at the Home Depot I guess.
