Exclamation contact cleaner

Hi !
I never posted anything but this is (i think) a good thing to start with.
I tried to clean my engine with loctite contact cleaner without taking it out of the motor case.
This is not a good idea.
The contact cleaner made my motor case instantly melt.
In a few seconds all that what left of it what some small pieces of plastic.
So this is a warning Do not try this without taking your engine out of the case.
Even the effect of the contact cleaner is still a mistery to me.
My engine turned faster but it was not for a long time.
Could someone give me some cheap tricks to make my Z 's engine more powerful.
Please excuse me for the language mistakes.

Dude, your english is better than ours!!

Check out the forums for the "speed secrets". Some of the best are cleaning your motor with contact cleaner--after you remove it from the motor case!! LOL Been there, done that

Bearings are a must, wider rims and tires if your body will allow it, monoshock and option h-bars to control rear wheel hop (stay away from the heavy graphite ones), and a ball differential to control the cars handling.

Check out the shop here!
Racing is a state of mind....and I've lost it
