Newbie Question on Starting the Engine

Hello all, I'm new to RC in general, have done a bunch of reading, but never took a stab at it until now. I but bought a Pro Boat Miss Budweiser 1/12th. I am able to start the engine, but it dies about 3 or 4 seconds after starting or if I remove the glow starter. Any tips you can give me on keeping it running? Thanks!

Sure! It sounds like the high speed needle is set too lean. These are preset roughly from the factory so you have to tune them for where you live depending on your weather conditions, altitude, etc.
