    lightning str

    Hey all, so I just bought a new lightning str and its giving me a huge headache. The car will not stay on. Either itll die after 4sec of idle or as soon as I tap on the throttle it dies. Ive searched this forum and also youtube. It went thru a glow plug in like 3 days, bought a new one and it looks like it abt to go as well. Ah, a little more info, Also I cant get ti to just idle correctly meaning the car seems to always take off by itself.

    RE: lightning str

    dont suppose there is anyone you know who could show you.
    its hard to tune a car over the internet...lol

    but there are 3 needles, idle, low, high.

    I assume you already did the breakin?

    kinda sounds like your idle is high, and your high speed needle is too lean.
