  2. your needle settings are too lean.....you need to change your needle settings.....turn them counterclockwise and see what that does.......

  4. Clockwise is the way the clock moves....look at a clock and the way the the arms move that is clockwise.....counterclockwise would be the other way......

    Well, there isn't much more I or anyone else on these forums can do I'm afraid. Nitro powered R/C vehicles are the most difficult of all to get running properly and there are just too many variables to be able to help you.

    Rather than posting your questions here, maybe you should take a drive to your nearest hobby shop with your car and ask for hands-on help.

    Too rich may cause problems but a bit on the rich side is just fine. Too lean will cause excess heat and with that comes friction and finally broken parts.

    too rich is when theres TOO much fuel in the engine which can make it loose power and is very sluggish.

    When you give full throttle and the motor bogs and slowly builds up RPM, then it is most likely too rich.

    If, on the other hand you give full throttle and the motor revs quickly but then drops off if you hold it at full then you are most likely too lean.
