It seems like every ESC after a short period of time the tabs that you mount it to and power button breaks. Is there a way to fix this or replace the power button?
I usually just air mine out and use a brush to scrub the dirt off, try to avoid water and cleaning agents. I am always cautious on canned grease as well (even silicone spray) is usually mixed with other goodies that can degrade plastics.I first use an air compressor and once done with that I take a paint brush spray simple green on the brush and hit the whole truck with that. Once that is done I use a separate paint brush and spray WD 40 silicone in there and again go over the whole truck. I take the motor modular out and the ESC/ servo receiver box out and clean separately
I dilute my simple green. At the most 60/40 water/simple green but usually 70/30 or less a little bit goes a long way.
Maybe use a little bit of double sided tape to help secure the switch?I appreciate everyone's input. I guess the take away for me is dilute the SG to about 50/50 and don't use on the esc as it might eat away at the esc? Is there a pro proactive approach I can take with my other cars that have the spectrum ESC on it? Maybe sandwiching small rubber o rings in between the chassis and esc? Any other thoughts?
I still can't believe the screw tabs on these ESC'S are that brittle or weak.
