Most engines are, but the one engine I've used that never needs tuning is an old HPI .21. I got it in early December, and have given it a quarter turn on the medium speed needle (previous owner fiddled I think) and that's all. It was running almost as well as the budget Italian mills on the track.

sounds like it has a air leak. Pull it out and reseal everything and see if that helps.
