The only motor that I bother to break in is the SCX RX motors.

I oil it up, drop in some comm drops then run them on 13.8v, 7amps for about 30mins, re-oil and re-comm drop and let it cool down. Then another 30mins, re-fluid and dry off.

Some people say that running in at such high voltage is bad for the motor, but I tend to have some of the quicker motors at my club.

All Ninco motors just get glued straight in, as they don't seriously improve until the are raced IMO.

Really, I don't think it matters massively what you do, so long as it has some running before you race it hard. You can run them under water or oil, but it just makes a mess, and they tend to blow up a bit quicker IME.
