Cool, good to know. One last question, I have heard of people that put their motors under water and run them to break it in. Anyone ever heard or tried this?

Yea it may be old school but it still works to a tee, except now we use alcohol or glass cleaner takes off all the glaze on the brushes and cleans the comm nicely and seats the brushes very quickly,like 1 - 2 mins.
