Default Re: Engine Temp??

RC car engine break in which is bad advice for an rc engine (idling an engine for break in is stupid) is similarly silly for a larger 2 stroke engine.

Please freshen up on the theory of an RC ABC/ABN engine. the piston is ringless and compresison is obtained by a tapered cylinder that provides compression/pinch. The engine must be heated up sufficiently under load or you will wear away the pinch and decrease engine longevity. Idling an ABC/ABN engine actuallly is the worst thing you can do to an RC engine. Its a proven fact that ABN/ABC engines last longer when they are run at 1/2 to full throttle continuously. I've got 30+ years in RC hobby and can attest to this fact.
