Default TRX 3.3 Break-In Interrupted

Hi, Recently i bought a Jato 3.3 and two days ago i started breaking the engine in, i had to stop at the end of the 4th tank because of people and lack of space for the 5th tank, so my question is, what do i do in order to continue the break in procedure? I already have more than enough space free of people, but couldnt continue today because of rain, help is much appreciated

Just continue as you would have if there wasn't something preventing you to. Shouldn't make a difference.

You shouldn't have to warm it up before you run it, I would just run it,bas long as it's running around 280 your good, personally I wouldn't run it in the rain because it could mess with the temp of the engine but I would think it would be fine.

Nitro engines always always always start easier when they are preheated. Anything above 200F is good. During breakin preheating is vital to reduce stress on the rod and allow the metals to seat properly. This greatly improves longevity. So you always preheat your engine especially during break in.
