Default Leaking Fuel

Hey guys... i have a last years, Nitro CEN ATX, 2-speed, 2.6 engine off-road and it is leaking a fair bit of fuel out of the exhaust wen i run it... I was wondering if this was normal, or is there somthing wrong?

Im thinking it has somthing to do with the re-breather line???

any input much appreciated.. thanx guys

when you have raw fuel coming out of the exhaust the engine will be on the rich side. The best thing to do is to lean out your needles small increments at a time, no more than 1/8. You want to have good smoke coming from the car at all times though.

If the fuel is coming out when you first start the engine, that is normal, all engines do that when they are cold.
