Default step by step on breaking/tuning a new engine

Hi guys!

i have recently bought a nova nsr murnan mod engine for my g4. We have already began breaking the engine 5 tanks in bench, another 4 tanks at the track.

I dont want to depend on my friend (who owns a rc nitro shop) and keep bugging him on tuning my engine, so i just wanted for me to go from here...

in the stretch, i noticed that the full power comes at the middle part of the road
and at the end, i have to make a sharp turn so this is so dangerous for me...

Now i need some assistance on how and what to adjust in the engine so it would run smoothly.

oh btw, im using a tornado 25% fuel

Thanks guys!
Mike

Try these two websites for breaking in and tuning. They really helped me when I was learning.

maybe it's not your tuning..... could be the gearing, pipe, clutch, two speed, etc.....

too may variables not listed to narrow it down on the forum.

Your quotes/info are wrong pretaining to the gearing you're using for the G4... Check it again... And that pipe is the wrong one to use for that motor.
Try the Nova 2630 pipe or the Skyline VR plus pipe for that motor.
