Default Running-in the Xray 180 motor

I wanted to ask since we race with the stock 180 Xray motor, what techniques do you use when running the motor in.

not realy much you can do on those sealed motor, pretty much just oil the bushings and break it in in a cup of water a 2 volts for a while

I 've never run it through a motormaster, but if we were racing like last year's xray challenge, a 25-minute main with the GP1100. I imagine the amp draw is ....... minescule
