I think its great. Much easier to break in engines with this. I usually attach it to a table and set it up in the backyard.

To me, the only drawback is the cost. I still think its great and now that I have it, I wouldn't want to break in an engine any other way.

The Hudy is pretty good. The only motor you can't break in is a .12 with a rotary unless you can turn another prop button on a lathe. And it's still tough to hook up linkage to the rotary.

But for all other engine with slide carbs this works much better than breaking a motor in while in the car. I recommend one. Also play with the heat gun and tin foil on the head to keep temp. The Hudy's fan really puts off some air over the cooling head and block. Good luck. Chad

Hey FITO, Scott is right, I love mine as well. I have both the Hudy and the RD Logics. The RD Logics stand is really worth the money for around $100.

The Hudy Break in Bench is also around $100.00 with better feature than the RD Logics one, The Hudy break in bench even comes with the engine spinner attachment to start your engine which the RD Logic don't.

The price on the Hudy has come down a lot. I bought mine about 9 months ago for about $100.
