Default tuning trouble

Hi guys i'm new to the site and ralativly new to R/C. i have an atomic warhead .18 engine goes alrite. i've had to do some tuning myself and being a novice i think i've fiddled to much . my problem is that when i put the throttle full open the buggy is very slow to take off and seems like it nearl stalls, it has even been as bad as not moving at all when throttle is open fully. any advice would be great thanks Andrew

thanks for the reply
umm, the spark plug is in reasonable nick i have a spare i will try with it. when you say the HSN do you mean the high speed needle? is that the needle valve on the top of the carby? like i said i am fairly new to nitro buggies.
cheers.
