Is it burning it or spitting it out the exhaust pipe? Is the throttle response quick and snappy or slow and sluggish?

Try leaning it out some. Turn your HighSpeed needle clockwise, in increments of one hour at a time then run it back in forth a few times.

Do this until:

1) The amount of fuel coming out exhaust is reduced to a white trail of light smoke with little to no fuel coming out.

2) Tempature exceeds what your manual tells you is safe for motor or motor shuts off on hard accecleration, dued to beign too lean. If that happens turn needle back a few ticks. When racing you want engine to be as lean as can be, but when bashing in parking lots, it ok to have motor a little rich, since you'll probably be guning your car for longer perionds of drag-racing.

No problem...get back to us and let us know how it works out.

BTW the downside of running your motor too rich is, it kills your glowplug. So, once you get it leaned properly, check plug and see if it needs to be changed.

As a matter of fact, take it out and stick it onto you glow ignitor and see if it glow bright orange like a new plug. If not change it.
