    Traxxas Break In

    Hello, so far I have been breaking in my nitro slash using the traxxas break in method. I am up to full throttle for 2 seconds. It says no cooling time for it so is it ok if I do the full throttle another time, or does the engine have to be straight out of the 1/2 throttle?

    Tank 1: Gently pull the throttle trigger to 1/4 throttle over a 2-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop.
    Cool 15 minutes.
    Tank 2: Gently pull the throttle trigger to 1/2 throttle over a 2-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop.
    Cool 15 minutes.
    Tank 3: Gently pull the throttle trigger to 1/2 throttle over a 3-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop.
    Refill tank when empty and go to 4.
    Tank 4: Gently pull the throttle trigger to full throttle over a 3-second count. Then gently apply the brake to stop.
    Refill tank when empty and go to 5.
    Tank 5: 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.

    Seems pretty clear though I don't know what you are getting at with your last sentence in your original post.
