Default STS D30M

I have an STS d30m in my buggy and it's freakin fast and loud. The other day when i took it for a drive the motor was blowing a heap of smoke (and i mean more than normal) but the temps were around 130 degrees celcius. The smoke tells me that it's too rich but the temps are telling me it's a tad lean. If i richen it up a bit it bogs down and flames out, if i lean it out to try and get rid of the smoke it would over heat even more. I'm using meccamo 25% fuel but i'm not sure of the oil content. I have seen other peoples d30m's with the same fuel and theirs aren't as loud and dont blow as much smoke.

Can someone please shed some light on my issue please, i'm stuck on what to do next.

Check the engine for air leaks. What plug are you using?
