View Full Version : Breaking in a motor

2008.01.16, 10:07 AM
I normally break in my motors by taping a AAA to them and letting them spin in a glass of water 2 times. Then battery in the dry but today I decided to make a little motor breaking stand:


I made the bottom of the mount almost completely non-existent so it could vent.

It's running on x2 1.2v AAs for 2500mah at the moment and it's airing well.

Could anyone give me any addition advice for breaking in a motor??

Anything else I can do to get the most out of it?

Such as lubing the bearings...
How many sets of batts should I run and for how long?
Water or not??
Rest between sets of batteries?

Etc, etc...
