Last year I only had a few flights so I skipped cleaning. This winter I will for sure. I pull the cowl yearly to have a look around anyways, it only takes me a few more minutes to drop the cans out. Then it's a quick weigh in on the scales to see how they compare to new.

Well, happy to report that there was a noticeable increase in power and smoothness. Definitely on the yearly to do list from now on!

Re: Cleaning canister mufflers

The contest (Northwest regional championships) was great. Canada was well represented and we took home first in Basic, Sportsman and Intermediate. In the regional points championship we took home first in Sportsman and Intermediate as well. There was a spread of only 24 points between first and fifth in Intermediate. I ended up 3rd in the contest and second in the region. Check out team Canada's haul!
