Its interesting to see how many non-engineers on the internet know way more about the cars then the ones who design, test & build them. The flog it out the door is an urban legend created by a guy who builds racing engines for motorcycle & wrote a good piece for the net.

Thing is most race engines get rebuilt on a regular bases, Top Fuel between every round, & are not expected to last for a good number of years.

BTW break-in is not just about the engine its also about the clutches , trans, center section, brakes, tires etc. Think the OP has learned about breaking in the trans.

This. +10000
