Exclamation Help tuning my car up.............

Couple problems i need sorting if possible with your help...

1.Full tank of fuel lasts literally 1 minute or 2 tops. Although its not noticably coming out of the exuast or leaking anywhere!
2.doesnt brake at all.

Im guessing i need to fine tune the engine up properly. Instructions taken from manufactuar homepage...

Main needle valve:
2-1/2 to 3 turns counter clockwise, out from the closed position.
Idle adjustment screw:
should be set so that the throttle is open approximately 1mm
(0.039inch) from the "just-closed" position. (does this mean i close the screw clockwise till it stops then open it by 1mm??)

The engine is a TEAM INFINITY .18 im using tornado 16% fuel.

Helpppp plsss!!

ya you'll want to play with the tuning a bit.. sounds like it might be too rich. set the high and low speed needle to factory (screw the needle all the way in then 1 1/2 turns out.

brakes.. try adjusting it.

i was thinking about it and if adjusting the brakes doesnt work then take a look at the actual brake disk and if its not too bad then im not sure what else to do, but if its worn enough then replace it.

I would try adjusting the brake linkages as he probably doesn't have them set strong enough

May I ask what car your driving? Btw 16% nitro fuel is pretty weak.
