No, I meant hard-stop. Don't slam the breaks when they're still being broken in.Levitron said:
No. NOTHING will cause major problems down the road... it's just theoretically possible that doing "the right things" might make it last a little bit longer.dugrant153 said:would stalling the engine a few times while its in its break-in period cause major problems down the road??
With a stereo? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I can't stress that enough. If those cones aren't used to moving, you risk cracking them.6_funk said:so how long did you keep the volume on full blast?Fobby_Monkey said:Good! haha at lease I am not the only one.
I actually got the logic of breaking in from audio speakers. Once new, you have to turn it up as LOUD as it can.. so that it can performs to expectation..
does anyone use this break in technique for their stereos??
No, keeping the RPM's low is NOT a good idea. You should not be straining the engine constantly, but keep varying them - RUN THE WHOLE RPM RANGE.gtgray said:I can't even imagine keeping the rpm below 3000-3500 rpm. Even being ultra conserative that would be unecessary after 100 miles let alone 1000.Absinthe said:Vary your speed, could be any speed from 0 to 188km/h
As long as the rpm is below 3000 or 3500.
Wait til your mileage hits 1000, then you can go pedal to the metal.
