    motor maintance?

    ok so I watched a vid of proper breakin and I didn't do that, I just ran it . What should I do to maintain my stock 775? I do blow it out after each use but should I do the water bath thing I saw in the vid periodically?
    Thanks just want to try to take care of my baby.

    I love that last sentance.... LOL! Just clean it out with electric motor cleaner, and then you can re oil the bushings with a motor oil, but 3in1 oil works the best. Don't use WD-40, it's not a lubricant.

    I'd beware of using brake cleaners, they can damage rubber and plastic, make sure to check the label. I think even a carb cleaner would be better, I stick to an electric contact cleaner personally. I also do the water break in on all my brushed motors, hasn't failed me yet.

    I take my motor out but still leave it connected and I use electric motor spray and spray into motor while running and before installing I use 3in1 oil both front and back for the bearings. Works for me, hoped this helped u out. I use the radio for various speeds on the throttle. Peace.
