Never tried it but i never would . When you break in one of these engines too quik you are asking for trouble . I prefer monty's heat cycle method .

That's exactly what I thought when I first saw it. I still wont use it under normal circumstances but there are people that swear by it and I HAD to use it once.

It was a big 1/8th onroad race. I was running a new, somewhat experimental motor I had got a few weeks before and it was GREAT all through practice. Unfortunately in the last practice, just before qualifying it suffered a catastrophic piston failure (a nice, almost perfectly square hole right in the middle of the piston). A rep from my motor sponsor gave me a brand new P/S/rod assembly and I had to rebuild the motor right there on the bench and get it broken in for the first qualifier.

Having only a couple of hours, I did the WOT break-in and a quick tune during warm-up. Motor ran great the rest of the week.

Like I said, I still wouldn't do it under normal circumstances but if you just HAVE to get it done, go for it. It works for a lot of people.

There is no way your going to be able to properly
in that amount of time. It's going to take you that
long to figure out the tune on that GO engine. If
you couldn't find a tune on a Clocked JL, well good
luck with that GO engine. It takes over a gallon of
fuel to break the tight inital pinch on the GO engine.
Hammer it any sooner and you will waste a con rod
fast. But, if you can afford a $100 dollar a gallon
engine, go for it.

I read the site. If what they say is true and the motors are not as tight as they used to be, that should work just fine.

Well, D8 is the world champ and GOs are just Nova clones so who knows, it just might be.

Dude i was the one who taught hara how to race like he races. He doesnt run the o.s. worlds. He takes a go and put the worlds head over it.

My opinion the faster u break in ur engine is killin the life. If its worth the engine not lasting long then break it in as fast as possible, many people have diffrent methods but none can be completed in 3 hours. Some might say yeah you can but 3 hours then runing it like you would after a gollon or more threw it the engine will not last long at all.

I have used Cyrul method many times... as well as a few race buddies... My current speed was broke in using Heat cycle method. Guess I will see in a few months which I prefer... All of my speeds have lasted 7 - 8 gallons.. rebuild p/r/s bearings, and get another 5 gal before crank wears out..
