    I broke my motor in by disengaging it from the driveline (just unscrew the mesh screw), disconnect the leads to the EVX-2, and connect a pair of AA batteries in series to it, and let them run down till dead. Worked great, went for about 20 minutes.

    Underwater for 10 minutes.... you won't have any brushes left by then! Just drive it softly for the first few packs or let it run on it's own slowly with a 6 or 7 cell pack..

    I believe the underwater recommendation is for 3 minutes.

    I was going to do the water break-in, but didn't want to go through the hassle so I did a 3V no-load run for about 2 hours.
