Default Best .21 engine break in with-out a heat gun ? Recomindations?

I've got mr. Adam Belvins
doin up a nice little Picco 28 for me, drag mod
supper stoked.
Its going onto a IGT2
What kids of speeds should I expect with the stock 2 speed gearing?
Next upgrade options?
Not going to be racing, just bashing around, and high speed runs.!

so.....
1.) Break-in procedure w/out heat gun?

2.) Gearing options?

3.) Expected top end?

4.) Next upgrade?

Thanks for the time guys!

Take Care

Interesting Piddlefoot

Im not even sure God knows as I dont believe he exists.

So, either way, no help there....

Unless you have his direct line!

Your spending money on a drag tuned engine but you are too cheap to buy a $10-$15 heat gun? If you preheat the engine for the first gallon you can easily extend the life of your Piston/Sleeve/Conrod by a few gallons.
