Default Engine Break - in

Just bought a xtm x-factor, and I'm brand new to this hobby... What is the best way to break in my new engine. I bought 20% Nitro. Is that right?
Thanks in Advance,
Wes-

welcome to the hobby, and ongrats on the truck.

I'm not familiar with the xtm , but i'm sure its like every other, follow the break in process in the manual step by step and dont rush, you'll have plenty of time to have fun after its broke in.

20% should be right, thats what i broke my savage in with and still run with it.

Good Luck

Default The fuel sounds right!

Just remember to take your time! If you rush it it will not last as long! Just follow the directions in your manual and you should be fine! I like to richen it a bit more then what the book calls for if it will run at that setting but, that's just me and I have some engines that have lasted much much longer than expected!

Why people always try to ignore what's crystal clear in the manuals?
