yeah,thats the way I am going from here on in.i just wanted a faster breakin than the synthetic give you.
I have used Redline before for breakin but after four gals. the ring still showed signs of not being seated yet,still had dark spots on the face of ring.
I buy Redline by the gal. sense I like using 32-1 ratio.on the back of the jug it even says not to be used for breakin.but sooner or later it will breakin it will just take more time.

I use 40:1 Penzoil Air cooled for 3 gallons on the small engines and 5 gallons on the large ones before switching to Synth. A NON Synthetic oil will provide a quicker break in. However you absolutely need to allow the cylinder/s to cool completly between flights so they will contract in size and provide you with maxmium friction and contact.

No dude, no need to apologize, let me clarify .

I was pissed because I didn't have time to get to talk to you dude. First timer in shock also. Believe me if I show up to an event with my plane and fly it strangers tend to come talk to me. I fly like I act. I don't f around you might say. I'm all business trying to blend nice slow low 3d with puninhing wot aerobatics. still haven't figured how to break my 88 inch EF edge and I try every time I fly!

I wasn't saying anything bad...
I have a funky sense of humor, get used to it.

GP 123 V2 was not out 6 months ago, therefore all V2's should have that ^^?

What does it mean for the daily fliers here, don't fix what ain't broke, or take matters of pre caution and fix it before it breaks a plane?
