Default Tornado bb help

I just recieved my tornado bb and i was breaking in my engine just letting it idle and it was spitting gas out of the exhaust. What do I need to do to fix this? Also after I let the car idle through 3 tanks of fuel I went to drive it & it would rev like it was going to move but it would not move.. what could cause this??

i think the whole gas spitting thing is normal. the factory setting is set for the break in procedure and its really rich because the enigne needs the oils in the fuel. i wouldn't worry about it. just tune the car right and it should go away. when you say it reved like it would move was it in nuetral?? if it was you just need to mess with the throttle trim. hope this helps

lol there aint such thing as neutral on these cars right now i would leave the tuning like it is until break in is done the reason it spits gas out is because it is rich but it should be like that during break in also you need to tighten the slipper nut on the tranny and it will take off the slipper nut is right beside the spur gear
