Default need help with my nitro xtm x-cellerator

ok i have broken the truck in and i think i have it tuned right. at one point it was spitting fuel out of the tuned muffler so i turned the high speed downalittle until it stopped doing that. i hope it is right. to me it sounds good and to me it drives amazing but it is going through fuel like its nothing.

can someone tell me if its supossed to do that or if i have something tuned wrong. i have only played with the idle and the hsn since i can not find the lsn at all. and thats still set of stock. thanks

try leaning the high speed a little more. either that or you have an air leak (not likley on a new engine but still possible). bearing in mind the engine will burn through fuel pretty quick anyway.

my question is this. how much smoke is a bad thing for the truck. right now its pretty think when you run the truck. also where is the low speed needle located. i havent touched that at all.

one last thing how do you know your truck is tuned right. when you press the throttle does the truck immedialty take off or does it do a slow start then speed?
