Default engine tuning question!!!!

hi, i have an STS RS12 and here's my problem:
when i let the engine idle for about 10 seconds and give it full throttle, the engines just dies. It doesn bog down, or stutter or anything, it just dies=/ does anyone kno what this means? I've been told thatr means teh low-speed needle is to rich.
any ideas??
any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey Boy,

Dose your engine still alive?Hahaha....

Maybe the low-speed needle is too rich or the ignition timing is too late.

Try this:
1)lean the low needle.(around 4 out)
2)New or Hotter plug.
3)Take away some head shims to increase the compression.

PS.Howard is back to Taiwan.I'll meet him when next Sunday race.
