For those who are always asking "how to runin an engine?"

Quoted from Novarossi site

RUNNING-IN SUGGESTIONS
BY
MARIO ROSSI
Novarossi micro motors is engaged on racing tracks in the whole world thanks to the official team that works in symbiosis with developing and test department.
We are there for able to provide you with some precious hints regarding running in directly from the person who take care of the official team engines : Mario Rossi.
Running in for engines is a very important step, so if you made a good running in, you obtain a better engine works and longer engine life ! The best running in possible is made before on the bench with propeller and later on the model, but I understand this is possible only for few people cause it needs a security devices that not all the people can provide (engine on bench turns at 40.000 rpm ! !).
I usual made running in on tracks, let engines really rich for 2-3 fuel tanks ( so rich that gear box has not the rpm to change the speed), than I leave the engine off for let it colder, than I became to made the carburation a little lean each 5-6 laps until I find the best adjustment. It is also important to check the glow plug after this operations and my advise is to change it after running in.

Enjoy your racing
Mario Rossi

I think you can go to yahoo.com.hk and go to category "models" or "rc models". Some of those RC sites are about mini-z...

For a second there I thought you said how to 'ruin' your engine!!!!!!! Fortunately for Mario he has an endless supply of Free engines, 2-3 tanks at very rich, then starting to lean leaves no room to make mistakes!!!!
