    Water break in

    Hi.

    I did a water breakin in a Titan 775 motor now.



    Water didn't get dirty at all? What's up with that?
    Used distilled battery water.
    cleaned it with the electronics cleaner you see in the picture afterwards, then a bit of lube on the bushings.

    Thats unusual. Should have a few flakes from the brushes and a lil merky from the grime in the motor. Weird.
    To SUMMIT up, its my coolest RC.

    When I broke-in my Dewalt, there were very few specks and flecks in the water. Also, even after break-in my Dewalt "woke up" quite a bit after the 3rd or 4th pack, leading me to believe I may not have used either enough voltage or time.

    It might be a similar issue for you, perhaps others may chime in.

    Break in.. yes. Id hate to break a brush 1 or 2 mins into a new motor because I didnt break in the edges of the brushes.

    For you, I`d just finish my breaking in with 50% and less throatle for a set of packs throught the truck to make sure its broken in.

    There are many ways to break a motor in. I used water BC I did in my slot car days. Generally accepted, (and in many manuals), is to be gentle for a pack or so. The results are as varied as there are Summiteers
