Just bought a new Titan 12T. I aske the dude at the LHS how to break it in and he said to run a few packs threw it being gentle. I cant do gentle. So I asked him about the water immersion thing(saw it on Y tube) . He said to hook up three C cell batteries , get the moter spinning and put it in the distilled water.
Well my connections on the "battery pack" were not all that good. So I ended up hooking it up to the battery of my truck, using the throttle trim. It is soaking now.
He said to run it till the water turned black. Been going for 20 + minutes now and no black water.
