Default No low speed mixture adjustment...

My nitro engine (kyosho GX15) only has a high speed mixture adjustment. Any tips for setting up this? Tickover seems to be a bit crap at the moment..

Here is something I found that might help you...
take the needle out and clean it with alchohol. stretch the spring a little .

put it back in and and bring the needle down softly till it hits bottom.

back it out around 3 turns,get a good glow plug and ignitor.
make sure fuel line are clean and the air filter is too.

start it ,if it wont start and spews fuel its to rich turn it in aroun 1/2.
it should be a little rich

Cheers! I think my engine needs a good looking at. I'm gonna remove it and give it a good clean, and make sure its set up right.
