I always tune my engines by adjusting hsn FIRST until you get good top speed then SECOND adjust your lsn for good take off speed SMALL TURNS ONLY then keep your engine temp in check normally .12 around 110degrees and .21 around 120degrees, look at how your engine is performing you want a good bit of exhaust smoke, what will damage your engine is running at high temp continuosly which is associated with running your engine to lean. its not rocket science follow this simple format and your engine should last you a long time.
hope this helps.
