Questions?? How do I break in the engine properly?

Hi ppl!

I just got a kyosho DBX 2 days ago and I could I please get some advice on how to break it in properly?

And also I can't seem to kill the engine. The manual says to pinch the fuel pipe but I can't do that with my hands without getting burned by the exhaust and when trying with pliers the RPM just goes up.

Please advice.

Nik

Check the sticky up top about the break in. Break in Bible
As far as killing it. You just need to pinch harder, It will rev up as it leans out then will die.

Yes, turn the idle screw counterclosewise. How long did you run the engine?
