I just got my truggy in the mail today and am quite excited...the instructions suck however and don't really go into any detail on how to take care of the engine....no where does it tell you to run after run oil, or how to clean, put it away....anyone have any tips? I read something about piston position??? I am new!!!

When you finished running your engine put 3 drops of after run oil in the glow plug hole and then turn it over w/o the glow plug on for 3 sec. After, make sure your piston is at bottom dead center. (BDC) Then put your glow plug back on and that's it. Tekno.

I am using the sidewinder as suggested from the LHS.

With break in, what temps should I be running? I am hearing a lot of different ways such as wrapping a rag, tinfoil around the head and then using a heat gun...I didn't on the first two idle tanks, does it matter now?
