its bad to break in cars in the rain because the filter may be exposed and well its just not good to break in your engine it the rain. sometimes we get pouring rain so i wouldnt even be able to see my car.

Cmon Hunter I expect more from you, lol. I don't even like to run mine when the humidity is real bad. Because you are now not only mixing fuel and air but now you are trying to mix fuel with air that is heavy with water, this is not good for a nitro engine, you will try to tune it all day and it will run like crap! Water is NOT a lubricant. Not to mention if the servos are not ballooned you can damage those as well. Nitrowannabe you are right in waiting for the rain to stop.

Ok so I get it, its hot and raining right??? I was thinking do the break in under cover. like in a shed or something with lots of air flow. Not set your car/truck out in the rain when your doing it.

Ok, sure Matts, er.... ummm... I mean Hunter ;) Actually you want to drive it in large figure 8s easing in and out of the throttle to bring the engine through heat cycles and seat the piston in the sleeve properly, standing no load break ins won't do that. ;) I have not seen the owners manual for the new 2.5 however so that break in process might be a little different, I don't know.

My radio gear doesn't want to play in the rain :(

I balloon the servos, stand on my porch, and watch the rooster tails on my maxx. Thats the ONLY one I run in the rain.......

No thanks, I'll be a wuss. I'm not a child, I don't have " now " syndrome. :cool: I'd rather break parts due to running than incompitence. When I get around to it I will completely water proof all electronics. And I mean, make them submersible, then I will run in the rain. We do it in the marine industry all the time and I have access to a virtual wonderland of componets.-xmas-

The water has never stopped my t, well only twice when I turned it into a submarine but I had it going again within an hour.

Hehehehe - my wife even digs the rooster tails. It TRULY is a cool site to see. Even though afterwards I am running for the heat gun and the air compressor sweating the whole time.

Have yet to have any rust or ruin........

Balloons are key! Not suggested to run in the rain for ametures! Truly a diehard game.......
