first start off with your factory settings.(i usally do this if i don't have a manual) 2 1/2 out on the HS,3 out LS. that should start your engine at least. it's cold out side and usally it's a pain in the to start. whenu get it started do some high speed pass like 4 to 6 times and that get the engine warm. after bring to you and check the temperature with the temp gun or use water as a subtitute. if the water bubbles and dissolves fast, it's warm,if the water takes long to bubble it's too cold. if the water just dissolves it's to hot. in the cold you always want to run your engine rich. also see if you can get(depending on you engine) a mccoy 59 plug. it's a hot plug with a longer stem for better idleing.

read this up bro:

i guarentee you it will help you. you just need experice. i used to get pissed off of tuning engines and i sold my nitro cars. now im a pretty decent tuner becuase i practiced and now i know how to tune. nitro engine is all about sound and how much smoke(a nice trail of smoke is a good thing)and the performance. listen to ur engine make tiny increasements of the needles (like 1/8 of a turn) never do a full turn becuase it could either make it too rich or too lean. takes a bit of patience but hey it's worth it when your done. spend some time on it bro you can doit it's just the matter of practice and patience.
