    You've missed the point that Danny was making altogether.

    When you buy a new nitro motor, it needs a short period of careful running to "break-in" the motor before it operates smoothly and properly. The metal to metal parts inside a motor need to wear just a tiny bit (known as break-in) in order to provide best performance and long life.

    If you took your new motor and ran 25% nitro fule at full throttle right from the box then you have most likely caused stress due to over heating parts. The same basic principles apply when you purchase a full-sized car. You don't just fill up the tank and then drive it full throttle on the highway.

    Sounds like your motor has had proper break-in.

    No....your motor should be all set and ready to deliver its best power now.
