Default So...I bought an XXL...

I went and bought a brand new LST XXL yesterday. Picked up all the stuff to make it run and whatnot. So heres the thing. I read the manual and it says that I should have the High speed needle 2 3/4 turns out from the bottom and the Low speed needle 2 1/2 turns out from the bottom. Now, are those values where the needles should be set to break the engine in or is that a baseline "performance" tune? I have had nitro r/c's in the past but this is the first time I have never had to break in an engine so i'm not sure. Please help. Thanks!

I tried those settings. Using those settings, nothing but fuel came out of the pipe. The engine vapor locked and I snapped the shaft that the roto starter goes into the engine. I took the glow plug out and tipped the truck over and a ton of fuel came out of the engine as well as the carb so obviously that is wayyy too rich... So I am lost...lol.

The engine never started, or even tried to start. Even after the roto starter broke i tried to pull the engine over with the pull cord and the engine was vapor locked.
