Default Hpi savage 25, first nitro,

Just picked up a savage 25 from a yard sale for 25 bucks, I'm in it a receiver, my radio for the electrics does multi model, glow plug igniter, fuel, and the bit to stick in your drill. I've googled, youtubed, everything, and I cant make it run worth a Damn. It won't even run with the carb at base settings. Its my first nitro, but I have a decent understanding of engines, and I'm confused. Any help?

Default Some more info

It shifts early, I understand how to fix that but havent yet, at top end it smokes decently and runs alright, it just the accelerating part it has troubles with. I spent a good hour or so trying to tune it before the pinion gear got destroyed by the steel spur gear.

Have you looked at the low speed needle at all? Have you checked to make sure the carb is opening all the way ?
