Default Tuning questions please thank you!

My son just bought the RS4 3 the new 350z and I was wondering if someone could tell me a good setup for just everyday parking lot bashing.....

I need to know how many turns out from closed on all the settings.....

I have it tuned nicely for first gear but as soon as it wants second it bogs out and shuts off unless I let go. I have a nice thin line of blue smoke coming out. Very responsive in first. and sounds mean as hell.

Start at 3 turns out and tune from there. Every location had differnt temps and humidity. Currenlty mine is at 1.5 turns out and shifts to second gear and runs very well, this may change as the weather changes...

This car is basic, dont spend lots on it, the biggest and cheapest hop up would be to get some better tires.. Sorex 36R. or similar depending on your track temp..

We are actually racing a spec nitro sereis based on this car this summer. 100% box stock RTR racing... We had 2 years of no racing and now we have over 20 guys with brand new cars ready to race.. should be fun

I have raced these on and off for a couple years, sounds like the adjustment screw for the gears is too tight, it is located in the center diff, there is a hole in the cover that you can access it from, its kinda tricky cause you have to rotate the tires till you can just see the hex, start by backing that out by 1/2 a turn at a time. The motor adjustments should be done in 1/4 turn incriments, Nitro motors can be very tempermental thats one reason I went electric
