Default After winter maintenance?

Hi everyone, I just started getting into nitro trucks last spring/summer and I love it. But since last fall I havn't ran them so they have just been sitting around. Is there anything I should do maintenance wise so I can get back to bashing.

If i were to leave motor's for more then a month or so, I would personally Strip them down to the guts and store them with a light coating of Oil.

After run oil or even some basic Sewing machine oil.

Or if you strip everything down to the bone you can store it Dry as long as everything is Clean as a whistle.
