Ok thanks I don't know much about these Nitro motors yet so I'm kinda iffy about taking it apart right now. I just wanna break it in so I can play with my new toy and get use to it then I can also seal it later when im comfortable taking things apart.

Its easy and highly recommended. If you don't take the proper precautions your "play time" could be a lot less.

You may want to check this out also since you are learning. He has other great vids that should help.

I seal all my enginesbefore breakin. You can use any high temp silicone like permatex rtv or the permatex gold you can get it at any automotive store. Do yourself a favor and seal it.
