    3.3 Break in procedure

    Anyone know the proper break in procedure for the TRX 3.3? Is it identical to the 2.5? Or is it changed a bit? thanks in advance

    Definately use a hair dryer to warm up the block to about 150 F this will allow some expansion, making it easier to start that brand new motor.
    Heat cycling, I have heard good things about, but honestly I would stick to the book. It has worked well for many.
    Pay close attention to the cool down periods of 15 mins.

    ive never had to heat up the block. especally with the ez-start. i just crack the glow plug loose a little so the compression doesnt lock the engine and when it starts i crank it back down. i just got a new 3.3 last sunday and broke it in monday. it took about one minute to fire it off. of corse you have to use a glow stick this way.

    from what ive heard heat cycling is made for OS engines which are richer that normal from the factory. I would stick to the book for traxxas.

    please correct me if im wrong.
