here's the easiest way to check your car, start your engine and let it idle a few minute until the engine heat up, then pinch the fuel line, if the engine takes more then 6-8 seconds to die then you can lean your low end a bit, now take it to the track and set the high end, try to control engine temp around 230 +- range, until you are satisfied with your high end, open 1/12 turn then you are all set, of course there are other varibles that affect the engine such as %fuel you run, type of glow plug, track temp , pipe etc .
