Default What settings?

I recently got an O.S. .18 CVRX for my Tmaxx. Hopefully I will be breaking it in tomarrow. I just have one question. The manual to the engine says to open the needle valve 2 full turns from the fully closed position for break in. I have heard that this is a very rich setting for O.S. engines. I want to use the heat cycle method to break it in and I know how important it is to get the engine up to operating temperature. I was just wondering if these rich settings will keep it from reaching that temp. For those of you that have broken this engine in using the heat cycle method, did you run at those settings, or did you lean it a little, and if so, how much?

P.S. Is the heat cycle method only good to use if you race? I dont race it, and I'm not a very hard basher. IS it still important to use this method aside from what the manuel says? Thanks for any help.
