my servo gears have gotten a lot of crap on them lately [i can see black stuff all over the teeth] i tried scraping it off with an exacto, but the crap wont come off. what other ways can i clean my servo gears? my dad says to soak the delrin ones in hot soapy water. Will that work? what about the stock white gears?


Thanks,

Trevor

Bearing cleaner, electrical cleaner... put it in the jar, put the gears in the jar, shake... remove and put them back in the car.

well, i tried it with degreaser. [orange smelling stuff] The degreaser got rid of some of the debris, but only a little. it seems that the degreaser only softened the debris up, but at least that allowed me to remove it with a toothbrush.
