Break-in Dutch develops new engine break-in method

Dutch company develops new engine break-in method

Break-in Dutch have developed what they claim is an effective new way to break-in new nitro engines. Usable with .12 to .21 engines the rotating parts of the engine are submerged in a container filled with heated oil while the crankshaft is rotated by an electric motor. The temperature and RPM is computer controlled and fluctuates in a range of up to 200 degree Celsius and up to 3,000RPM to ensure an effective yet safe breaking-in process. Additional torque vectoring control ensures the engine is broken-in correctly and it can be used on the track straight away.
