Just wanted to get the virgin post over and done with (be gentle please) and say hello and thanks to all of you here. Ive been lurking for a few weeks doing research but now that i have been through my first few sets of batteries in my new Summit I figured I better register and post.
so might as well start off with a question:
does water break-in go faster than dry break-in?
I pulled the motor and ran 2 sets of (stock) batteries through it @ very low RPM (used throttle trimmer to keep it @ LOW, steady RPM) but even after almost an hour of running the brushes are barley worn.
Not even close to worn past the " _/\_/\_ " (humps).
Will repeating this in water (distilled) help speed up the process?
the wife and I and our 5 Y/O couldn't wait any longer to see the Summit in action so I've already run it around the back yard (about 2/3 acre in back) WOT @ times, on the stock batteries (will get the 25C / 5000 LiPo's going this weekend)
I'm a tinkerer @ heart, i used to be very into computer benchmarking and overclocking; dry-ice and liquid nitrogen, so i have a feeling it wont be long before i'll be modd'n this thing.
