Once you get the car so that engine will stay running and you can drive it you can begin tuning it. Read the TUNING BIBLE that is listed somewhere on RCTech.net and go slow on the carburetor adjustments.
There are 2 adjustments and a fast idle screw that you need to adjust.
I adjust the low speed first (some people like to do the high speed first). The low speed can be done on the bench with the wheels off of the ground. I slowly turn in the low speed a little at a time and each time the engine RPM will increase. Occasionally blip the throttle to clean out the engine. Adjust the fast idle to lower the engine RPM and once is stabilizes then slightly turn in the low speed again. I continue this procedure until the engine dies. At this point I turn the low speed mixture out 1/2 turn and I am pretty close to perfect. After the low speed is correctly set you will not have to adjust
The high speed is best adjusted on the track. I always tune my high speed with 1/2 of a tank of fuel because the engine tune changes based on the fuel level in the tank. It will be slightly rich on a full tank and slightly lean on a near empty tank. Don't go for a KILLER tune on a new engine. Get the high speed set so that the car is accelerating quickly and some exhaust smoke is showing.
