Cool Clutch break in

I think i read in my losi 2.0 manual that when new clutch shoes have been installed you should run it in.

the method this describes is holding the buggy on the ground so the wheels can't spin give the car 1/2 throttle for 20 seconds... and to do this 3 times.

does anyone do this or does it not matter?

I have someone hold the car down and give it full throttle for 2 or 3 seconds and then free rev it a little and then do it again. All you are doing is seating your clutch shoes. I have ran new clutches with out doing this and they seem to be fine. I think the only time you need to do this is if it is a new clutch and it seems to be slipping a little. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.
