Question
Cleaning 1/10 short course truck?

Hello I just got my first RC Truck the torment short course and was wondering if there is a video or if someone can explain the cleaning process. I will be doing mostly loose dirt driving with loose gravel and tall weedy grass, so it gets pretty dirty. Can I just spry the whole thing with water? It is the water proof edition. Thanks...

Don't spray it with water, then you'll have to go through all metal parts spraying them with something to displace the water and then oil every bearing/bushing on it.

Your best bet is compressed air and a paint brush.

well i usualy dont wash the cars, if you got them real dirty and muddy, wait for it too dry then run a pack through it on the road and it will clean itself.
you wont get fine dust off though but i kinda like that.

when i do wash them i just spray it with water haha

yes some times iv had bearings seize... but give it some oil and she'l be right mate!
