usally on road car engines have 2 needles. theres one by the carb(the one that you were turning), and one below that. the idle is the other needle so you need to adjust that.

So does the engine start and idle good? If yes and the engine cuts out when you're under power and it's up to speed it's too lean. Richen the high speed needle (the one sticking up out of the carb) about 1/16 to 1/8 of a turn counterclockwise. See what happens there. If it seems to bog down immediately then Id say it's rich, and I'd lean out the low speed needle which is near your throttle linkage that attaches to the carb. Lean it about 1/16 of a turn which would be clockwise. See if that helps any. Only make small adjustments at a time and run the car a bit and note any changes.
