It's hard to describe. You have to know what to listen for.

There is a great sticky on the top of these threads. I suggest reading it over and over.

honestly if this is your first engine i would find the person at your local track who is a good tuner and see if they will help you. let them get it close but safe for you, read the bible as above and start making very small adjustments to learn. also make sure your throttle linkage is right, make sure when you let off the throttle the slide closes completley and that it doesnt move any when your on the brakes.
