I don't have centax clutch, just the regular 3 shoe. I measure the temp on the top of the glow plug area. I fully broken it in aready. I got 6 tank break in, and i race it another 4 to test some stuff(speed etc). The engine only dies, or it will sound like it's struggling to move when it's taking off. I left the low speed near normal. The engine temp is at 220 while running. The car I think is pretty fast, it won't grab traction in anyway. I play with it in the tenis court with Hpi x patterns(Brand new). The car can still driff around. My cuzin flip in 3 time in the dirt, nothing was damage, I bet he learn from that lesson. The car also weight 3.5 lbs. I was just checking it since i was bored.

If you are happy then leave it alone!! The only reason why I asked about the centax is that the clutch can be adjusted to give a 'strange' engagement making the car sluggish!!

simon, it is around 150 or so, but your engine is good enough.

Why stray away with something that works so darn well. There is a break in thread a page or 2 back. Read the entire thing and pic what method you like the most. When in doubt, follow instructions.
