View Full Version : Suggestions for running in? Never done before....

10-14-2005, 01:50 PM

I've got a parkzone super decathlon and after scouring model suppliers here in the UK, have ordered a venom 370 fireball from a US supplier and it's being posted over the pond...

I've never run in a motor before but from the sounds of things, 2 cells and a cup of water is what i need... just put the motor in the water and then start it? then... what? how long shall i leave it? spray it with something like WD40 afterwards to remove moisture?

thanks for replies :)

IMO, not needed and possibly could damage motor. But if you got to do it:), go to www.google.com (http://www.google.com) and type in water break-in motor .

The motor should come with instructions if any break-in is needed. If not, the best thing to do is email the company to ask the question, there is no substitute for first hand knowledge.
