Default break-in question

Do electric motors need to be broken in like nitro motors?

Default yes and no

some do require you to break in at a lower voltage while some (Trinity for one) explain that the motor does not have to be broken in....I do cause I usualy get my Comm cut and to seat the brushes fully......chekout rccars.com and go to the Big Jim forum

there is the direct link I hope

electric motors need to be broken in only when you install new brushes, you can run for 3 minutes at 3 volts or use a 4 cell pack.
