run in isnt worth the effort unless the motor in a hand out and u need to get it ready qickly a 540 motor will run itself in naturaly over time AND you want run the risk of damaging it
just keep it clean
i oil after ever meet and clean the comm and spary out between every race

the reason mod and stock guys run in motors is becasue they cut the comm and they need to rebed the brushes

There are people at my track doing 13 second lap times with 540. In some of the heats they were faster then the stock racers So running the motor in must have it's advantage.

I dont agree with this
We run them geared between 4.2 & 4.5 FDR.
At this high gearing the comm .or the magnets die before the bushings are even running loose enough for the motor develop its best power.

Run it in for ages, beds the brushes and runs in the bushings, so that arcing happens less=less heat, bushings run with less friction=less heat and more speed.

What m-b has said would be true I think if just bashing and not gearing to the moon

I was just thinking. The comms on these motors become black after a certain amount of runs. Wouldn't a comm stick fit in between the air vents and clean the comm?

Has anyone used a 540 armature in another can?

Its pretty hard to get at the comm but it can be cleaned with cotton buds so i guess a comm stick will reach if its small and long enough.
