Default simple question, i think

My buggy drives around fine but when I go to open the throttle all the way it will die.I'm still getting used to getting the needles sit right and I think thats probably what it is.Whats should I do with the needles to fix this?

If you are not sure I would richen the top 4-5 hours. See if the problems goes away. If it does then just take your time and go through the tuning bible.

I have gone through this scenario several times. In the begining i was trying to tune my lsn and hsn at the same time. Big mistake. Leave your lsn flush and tune your high first. And just about every time it was to lean. But if you get a gurgerly bog then it is to rich. If it just cuts out it is to lean. It was just about always the latter. Richen it up, or if your tune gets really screwed. Go to a leaner factory setting, get it idling, get it up to temp, tune the hsn a hour at a time. then once you can go wot (get a wide open area) in a straight line in the fastest time, with a good trail of smoke and temps around 220. when that happens you can tune your lsn. try to keep it on the rich side. to lean and it will overheat or flame out.

I agree with this too. richen it up, and if that does not solve it, go the other way (lean it)
