wassup guys , i got the first two tanks ran through yesterday before it started pouring rain . try to finish the break in today . i am impressed even in this early stage it wants to pull the front tires off the ground at half throttle. lower 50's isn't too cold for proper break in is it ? anyone else here have a slayer ?

i'm going by the instructions on the tank . it worked on my jato and revo untill i messed with the carb too much on the revo and cooked it :(. so now i got a slayer . 1 tank 1/4 throttle hold for 2 seconds stop , repeat . cool 15 minutes. 2nd tank 1/2 throttle hold 2 seconds stop , repeat. cool 15 minutes first two tanks body off . now on the last three tanks body on and no cool down between tanks .tank 3, 1/2 throttle hold for 3 seconds stop repeat ,adjust idle if necessary. tank 4 full throttle 3 seconds stop repeat (don't allow it to shift into second). last tank , tank 5 accelerate to full throttle over three seconds and hold full throttle for two seconds. and i like what i see so far . i ordered a 3.3 to convert my 2.5 jato.that thing is a blast to drive:D

I did all the above minus the wide open throttle part.. IMO thats a litte much.. i just drove it easy.. then it was on. BTW it is way fast.. almost too fast

yeah I almost converted my Revo but instead went the bash worthy route and added a cage and internal strengthening...
