been reading the mods "newbie to nitro" instructions and it says set the idle and so far I haven't even touched the idle
right now I finally got the smoke at full throttle but only for like 4 seconds then it disappears. still getting an hot engine tho after about 5-10 minutes.
my question is what does "set the idle" mean? how does that correspond with the speed needles?
Set the idle means to adjust the idle speed, and the idle fuel mixture.
There is a separate needle that controls the idle RPM's. So long as it is not pulling your truck, nor is it dieing do you need to really touch it.
When tuning, make sure you start tuning when there is a half a tank of fuel. They tend to lean out a bit as the fuel empties. You want that smoke to stay there the whole time. Try richening the HSN a touch.
