Default GS15R Breaking In...

Just bought my first nitro RC car... Kyosho V1S

I was reading on a website that its a good idea to pull the GS15R motor apart and check for debris before starting for the first time, and breaking in. I took the head of and checked for debris at the top of the piston and the condition of the sleeve... looked very clean, and slid perfectly. I dont really want to take it apart any more, so should i just leave it, or get someone with experience to take a look at it?

take the glow plug out and fill the engine with fresh fuel. turn it over by hand and let the fuel spill out. basically give the engine an internal wash job. put it back together and run it it will be fine. start it with the glow plug slightly loose the first time and once it firs and runs tighten it. This will make it easier.
Just here to give the world grief.

Ill usually just put 5 drops of after run oil in the engine before I run it for the first time.
