Default Break in new buggy

Hi there I am wondering if I need to brake in my new 1/8 buggy, diffs, brakes and so on....
How much time it needs to break in it?

There are a few tricks to breaking in diffs and whatnot.. like hooking up a drill to the diff and spinning it for a short period but I always just drive it a few tanks and after that everything always feels broken in and free. So its just your preference I think.

Any buggy, no matter the make will feel different after 1 whole gallon of fuel. This break in period allows all the diffs, drive train, plastics, etc time to wear in and settle.
