Default Savage break in problems

Hey guys I've been trying to start my savage for ever. I just really wanna bash it. I now wish I went with a losi 8ight t but that besides the point because I gotta work with what I got. I took it to the hobby shop to get started and the idle carb gap was really big and everything else was really rich. It idled great but if I gave it gas it stalled. My logic said to lean out the lsn and hsn and close the idle gao more. I did that and it won't start should I go back to what it was? I'm still trying to break it in.

Yes, return it to factory settings.

HSN and LSN flush with the carb body

Those are the factory settings according to a quick google search

These setting are usually super rich from the factory for break in. It is recommended not to deviate too far from them. If you have a temp gun on hand, keep an eye on engine temp, otherwise the good ol water droplet test should suffice. Place a drop of water on the head, if it sizzles off immediately, too hot, turn HSN counter clockwise 1-2 hours at a time until the water sizzles off within a few seconds.

Don't touch the LSN until break in is done. LSN is for the bottom end punch.

I'm not saying I know more than you but I thought you adjust the lsn during break in more than hsn

A big error often made is when started to take of the ignitor.
Just keep the wheels from the ground, leave the ignitor on and give some throttle (pulses) to heat up the engine. A warm engine will stay running much easier.

I have been using a blow dryer that's unusually hot to heat it up

Blow dryer or heat gun. Preferably an engine heater though.
