    Traxxas Method You'll have to check the factory needle settings for what ever TRX engine you are breaking in.

    Tank 1
    1. Drive the model with the body off.
    2. Driving procedure: Gently pull the throttle trigger to 1/4 throttle
    over a 2-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop.
    Count the two seconds out while accelerating: one thousand one,
    one thousand two, and then stop. Operate the throttle trigger as
    smoothly as you can. Repeat this starting and stopping procedure
    until the first tank of fuel is nearly empty.
    3. Look for thick blue smoke exiting the exhaust outlet. If there is
    no smoke, richen the high-speed needle 1/4 turn, by turning the
    needle counterclockwise.
    4. When the fuel tank is nearly empty, shut off the engine by pinching
    the fuel line connected to the carburetor (use the installed clamp).
    5. Let the engine cool for 15 minutes.
    Note: If at any point the engine cuts out or stalls during gentle
    acceleration, richen the high-speed needle 1/4 turn by turning the
    needle counterclockwise.

    Tank 2
    1. From tank 2 forward, Slayer should be driven with the body on.
    2. Driving procedure: Gently pull the throttle trigger to 1/2 throttle
    over a 2-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop. Count
    the two seconds out while accelerating: one thousand one, one
    thousand two, and then stop. Repeat this starting and stopping
    procedure until the second tank of fuel is nearly empty.
    3. When the fuel tank is nearly empty, shut off the engine and let it cool
    for 15 minutes.

    Tank 3
    1. Driving procedure: Gently pull the throttle trigger to 1/2 throttle
    over a 3-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop. Count
    the three seconds out while accelerating: one thousand one, one
    thousand two, one thousand three, and then stop. Repeat this
    starting and stopping procedure until the third tank of fuel is
    nearly empty.
    2. As the engine loosens, the idle speed may increase and cause
    the model to try to creep forward when stopped. Reduce the
    idle speed by turning the idle adjustment (see page 17) on the
    carburetor counterclockwise.
    3. When the fuel tank is nearly empty, shut off the engine and refuel.
    From here on, you do not need to let the engine cool between tanks.

    Tank 4
    1. Driving procedure: Gently pull the throttle trigger to full throttle
    over a 3-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop. Count
    the three seconds out while accelerating: one thousand one, one
    thousand two, one thousand three, and then stop. Repeat this
    starting and stopping procedure until the fourth tank of fuel is
    nearly empty.
    2. Apply the throttle gradually! Your finger should not reach full throttle
    until the end of the three-second count. Slayer may try to shift into
    second gear. If it does, reduce the throttle input. Do not let Slayer
    shift out of first gear.
    3. Keep your driving smooth and consistent.
    4. When the fuel tank is nearly empty, shut off the engine and refuel.

    Tank 5
    1. Driving procedure: Gently pull the throttle trigger to full throttle
    over a 3-second count, hold for 2 more seconds, and then
    gently apply the brake to stop. Count the five seconds out while
    accelerating. Repeat this starting and stopping procedure until the
    fifth tank of fuel is nearly empty.
    2. The model should now be shifting into second gear. If it is not, try
    turning the high-speed needle clockwise 1/8 turn to lean the fuel
    mixture slightly and test for shifting.
    3. When the fuel tank is nearly empty, shut off the engine and refuel.

    Tank 6
    STOP! Clean your air filter before you proceed. Refer to the instructions
    on page 21. During the sixth tank of fuel, the engine can be tuned for
    general performance use. Proceed to the next section in this manual.

    Naaaa I wouldn't have bothered typing that. Copy and Paste works wonders I just got on this site and went to the manual for the Slayer. I knew where it was at since I have a Slayer and know what page it is in the manual.

    Not a prob. I know what it's like to have a slow computer . I'm glad I got a faster one now.
