After a race weekend, I have a lot of oil resdue under my car, and in some 
areas, quite a build up of muck that is really the result of years of neglect 
in hard to reach places.  I do a wipe down with brake cleaner aerosol as a 
regular maintenance routine.  Some is from my trans and diff, some from other 
cars.  The brake clean is effective and relatively inexpensive.  I use an 
Autozone generic.  But don't breath in.

Couple of questions -

1) Degreasing the transmission - what's the best way to do this? I guess I 
could scrape it by hand but that seems like a pain, and a test
     indicated that it would scratch the case up. I could get some of the 
engine degreaser that you spray off but would need make sure I
     didn't get anything inside the case, I guess. And would need to remove the 
electrical switches.... What have others done?
