Thanks. I will have to print this out and bring it with me to the track. I have a Kyosho/Exergen temp gun that I have to track down. Last I saw the wife was using it to play with the cats. I'll have to convert that F to C, too. I'm sure your method works just fine.

Basically you will adjust the top-end mixture for a head temperature of around 220 - 240 AFTER making a few hotlaps. Make sure you are driving the car as you will be racing it - HARD.

Once the top-end is set, then you'll work to adjust the low-end ( the screw that is accessed from the front of the car ( and it is usually a bear to access ). Never adjust the mid-range ( the easy one to access from the rear ). You will adjust the low-end so the engine has good throttle punch off the line BUT it also should leave a trace of smoke on acceleration.... anyway , that my method and I'm sure it isnt the best.. Good luck!
