he means you should wait one hour before running five minutes

j/k - what he means is that you shouldn't turn more than 1/12th of a turn (like a clock if you want). We all use clocks so we all can pretty much visualize what 1/12th of a turns represent.

Yeah. Hours is a pretty standard mesurment for tuning a nitro engine. Very small adjustments. These engines are very sensitive to adjustment. you don't want to over adjust them, especially during the break-in process.

if you want to. I myself run 20% all of the time. It's really up to you/personal preference.
