    Ok so I bought a ecx ruckus 4wd.. 1/10 scale.. waterproof electronics... after use can I spray it off with a light water hose? Then maybe put in sun or blow off with compressed air? If not what's best way to clean dirt and mud etc? Thanks for help it's my first RC

    I spray WD-40 on the bearings that got the most wet, then let the mud dry. Then it's easier to scrape/brush off.

    So a light spray is not a good idea?

    if the electronics are waterproof you should have no problem with a light spray , then WD40 on all metal parts

    I spray my rigs down with a hose. Then dry with air and WD40 all metal parts. Some times I use Liquid Wrench White Lithium Grease before I go out and play.......
