Poor Sausage
Go back to your base settings and adjust from there, Im pretty sure your running an OS8 so thats cool. Remember that ambient temp/humidity can majorly change your tune and as such if you raced a couple of weeks ago it was 30Plus degrees with nearly no humidity, at the moment it is 20ish with 90% plus humidity
that is about as different in real terms as you can get.
All R/C shops should hold tuning workshops on a regular basis as part of thier service, Shit thats a good idea mmmm I might have to work on that idea further!!!!!!!!
Hows goin Luis?

That was my prob squizzy, i was running in 30+ heat, dry as, then on race day we were running in the wet. We were wondering why we all had slicks.
We had a storm right at the start of nitro heat 1.
We had to wait 1 1/2 hours to start again, mind u that last half an hour i used to get my car running. it was being a major dog.
So the rain actually helped me get my car going.

So how much is a porta glow heater???

u know the little hand held ones with battery and heater tip all in one?

There is NO such thing as stock bottom end settings!!!!!
Those settings are meant to be adjusted according to

1) temperature
2) humidity
3) fuel
4) High end adjustment
5) glow plug heat

All these factors will effect not only top end but bottom end as well. All your symptoms are indicative of low end richness.
Try taking your low end in 1/16 of a turn at a time until it runs without stalling, it should load up after about 7-8 seconds.Then play with your top end if required but remember your top end adjustment will also effect your bottom end slightly so it may take a few runs to get it just right.
