How to break in brushes???

I was wondering how to break in brushes. Trinity sells like 3 different bottles of oils to help break in the brushes, and am curious about how to do it. I thought ive heard that you can run the motor at 3 to 4 volts, but am unsure.

You don't really need any oils for the brushes or comm during break in. Just make sure to oil the bushings/bearings. If you have a turbo 35 or some sort of motor running device, run the motor at 2.3v for 400 seconds. If you don't have a machine like this, make a 2 cell pack, and use that to break your motors in.
