Default Motor Break In Help

I am currently running stock and a trinity spec motor(MUST use spec brushes as well) The question I have for you guys is what do you recommend using to dip the motors into while breaking them in. I cannot get a good answer from anyone at the track I race at and I am trying to get a little speed. Any information that you could provide me with would greatly help.

No need to put it in anything. Just break the brushes in for 2mins at 2v. Skim the comm, replace the brushes, clean and re-oil the motor bushings regulary and you'll be fine.

break them in water like the Tamiya silver cans 2 minutes in water at 2v should be enough

when you goto break them in, use D batteries...

do not use like a GFX or any kind of motor break in util when water dipping. just batteries.

if this motor is like a silver can than do this if you like.
in water for 30 sec out of water to dry a bit stop motor and lube the bushings(if the motor has bearings dont do the water thing)
run at 1v for 30min with a fan on it like the crc one.
can you post a pic of the motor so i know what one it is this would help.

Thanks for all the replies, the motor is a rebuildable and it has bushings not bearings. It looks very similar to this motor

Its has stand up brushes. I just cannot seem to get good speed from the motor...

iv talk with alont the the guys that run street spec on oval they tweek the spring so they are stiffer and break it in for 15 minuts and never ever take the brush out till you need to cut it

the brushed ar every hard and take forever to break is

you will never get good speed from its al about gearing
