Post Car keeps on stalling

When i apply gas right after it was idling it sounds like it is about to stall.
Sometimes when its running fine then when i apply full throttle it stalls

It sounds like it too rich, lean it out some a little at a time till it doesn't stall out

"sometimes" if the base needle is tuned on the lean side this would happen. sounded and seem steady at the beginning of acceleration but jerks in a few sec.
but most of the time its too rich. in this case, initially when u throttle from 5 sec idle, it just too slow to jump

does the motor produce smooth acceleration initially? smoke?

My car smokes A LOT. A lot of unburned fuel comes out of the tail pipe

Sounds rich, like Serpent Dan suggested. Turn you highspeed needle clockwise by one hour, then run it a bit. Keep doing this until car runs and accelerates smoothly. Car should just give a puff of white smoke on hard acceleration and a faint smoke trail while running.

Btw.....What engine are you using?

its not really good to run it that way. the only solution is like what kyo advice u to do.

my best tips from my mentor, "the best condition to tune ur engine is in the afternoon when the temperature & humidity is slightly high".
so the next time,when its cold etc:
in the morning/evening, u keep the base setting, lock high speed needle 3-8mins. the value wont run so much on a very steady climate.

hope this helps.
