I ran an STS .12 Part# 1018 and sheared the end of the crankshaft off after maybe 1.5 litres of fuel
I know they're cheap, but what's the go with that?
It looks like the material fractured as though brittle

Default D21T engine

Hi.

I'm going to break-in this engine. Inside it looks really great with no metal leftovers and nice finish. The carb has 3 needles. Is that the old or the new carb?
Do you change the rod after break-in (heat-cycle)? It hasn't got a very hard pinch like some other brands of new engine got, so I'll guess the rod doesn't get too stressed.

Thanks gentlemen

Is that the 833 in vid looking at the vid that looks like Hangs Hk1 from the paint scheme on the body. Randy is correct his 833 was fast,maybe worth looking into.
