Troubleshooting Nitro's
  Carburetor tuning takes time and is difficult to learn for many. Try to look at an adjustment screw as a clock and divide its rotation into 12 increments. Each adjustment is 1 hour. No adjustments take effect instantly, especially if the vehicle was idling for a long time getting the adjustment. Make the adjustment, take it out for a rip then do any other adjustments needed.
