Default Break in fuel additives?

So I've got this shiny new .12 CV-r sitting in my RC10 GT and I need to break it in. I think I'll be using the heat cycling method as described here:

How does this method sound/work for you?

Also another question. I will be using Trinty Monster Horsepower 20% to break the engine in. This fuel already has 12% oil content, but should I be thinking of adding more for the break-in?

Thank you for your time.

12% oil content is enough. You just need to remember that don't let the rpm stay at high revs. 15% oil content is the best. But it will take longer when break-in.

If you haven't already started the engine, try spraying a shot or two of PB Blaster in the tank before you add the fuel. It will mix in with the fuel and help the break-in proccess. It works wonders and is great for after run oil. Also, heat cycling the engine will help a ton.
