So your engine was broken in basically barely moving?
BAD move...
It would be cheaper to re build the engine... But are you going to be doing some club meetings and what are there rules if so?

Are you going to be wanting extra power soon on?
What are you challenging against?



Really with your break in I was told to break in, on what you plan to run on...
I had planned to run on 20%nitro and 18% oil...
And I broke it in on 20% nitro and 20%oil (extra oil for break in)

But now im back running at 16%Nitro, and from memory 20% oil for extra lube cause im only street running now...


Now this break in worked for me REALLY well...

Start the motor up, let it warm up for a bout 30seconds WITHOUT stalling, and keep the wheels IN THE AIR, so start it on a block of wood or something...
Then just drive up and down your street at about 1/4-1/2 throttle...
Do this for about 4 tanks really...
I didn't let mine cool down either... but after about 2-3tanks ago i got bored and packed up so it did get cool down in the break in...
Then after that 4th tank, start to wind it up more in speed,
People generally recommend 1/2 throttle and slowly lean it in, BUT I didnot do this...
Basically, while still running fairly rich, allow the motor to rev up... DO NOT JUMP ON THE BRAKES and dont just slam the throttle open...
(The GS-15r takes a fair lot of revs too) but dont ever fully peak rev...
After about the 8th tank i was really touching on my max rev threshold, that was when i leaned my motor in about 1/8th of a turn, and then the tank after i went in another 1/8th..
So really over the whole break in i only leaned in 1/4 of a turn ON HIGH... NEVER TOUCH THE LOW SPEED WHEN BREAKING IN...

Anywho... my break in also consisted of drag racing my uncles V8...
The reason i dont lean it in much when i broke in, was because i was touching some very high revs...
I have had zero problems with the motor after breaking it in...
And after putting 1 litre through the tank, I made a slight adjustment on low speed, and really left the top end a little bit rich because i was street running...
If your on the basketball court, and only racing against mates, let it run slightly rich, itll save the motor, and if the day it cools down, the motor will really come on and perform, because its basically picked up an optimum tune...
But basically run slightly rich, let it blow a little bit more smoke then a perfect tune... its being on the safe side...

And after running in, change the glow plug...
If your running at club meets, You can run the optimum tune, it will allow you to be on time, but i still keep slightly rich when i was at club runs, it just gives a safety buffer for us poorer people...
I dont have the money to put into new motors...

If you answer my questions from above, we can help and decide whether you should rebuild your engine, or get a better more power ful one...

But remember, its not always just buy a new motor and bolt it in, sometimes you need new flywheels, different clutches and clutch bells, and different mounting plates...
