Default Tuning Help Please

Hi guys, so during the B main at my track i flamed out and i wouldn't start. Today i leaned out the low end about 1/2 turn, and it started, but wanted to rev really high, so i richened it about 1/4 it started but still wanted to rev high, so i turned my idle screw clockwise about 1/4 turn, but it still wants to idle high, suggestions?

Lean it out.
My LRP drops rpm's when I lean it, so you have to increase idle speed to keep them up, same as most, if not all, engines.

It should be clockwise = increase, ccw = decrease.
