Ok I will do that, Jeez im glad I joined this site, these break in instructions are vastly different to what I was going to follow which I received from another site.

With the buggy on a stand wont it heat up too much because there will not be any air flow? Would it not be better to put it under some load and take it on a smooth flat surface?

You can do it that, just you'll need to adjust your idle so the wheels don't start to spin at i really high rpm. You also can set it on the ground against something and let it go. Or you can put on the ground and run it around. Everyone doesn't do the breakin the exact same way.

Now this is the sticky topic no matter who I talk to about break-in. Me personally, I do not idle nothing, from the first tank, I put my car on the ground and run it, 1/4 throttle, but I always make sre that it reaches 200 degrees.
