I'd like to know what is/was the preferred method of break in for the TSR motors, I have a couple that I'd like to run in the Retro series...

    Peter,

        Actually, out here on the West Coast where the TSR D3 motor is still being used at our SCRRA Flat track races, most people have found that any motor break in is unnecessary.  I've TQ'd and won several major events out here with TSR's that I've put in the car and just ran a few laps..... :)

Bryan is correct.  When we ran those I would just put it in the car, oil it and make laps. 

 

In my opinion the TSR was the best of the FK motors.
