It's been awhile BUT:

The farther the screw is into the motor, the leaner the A/F mixture (being screwed all the way down means no fuel). Go all the way in, then back out about 3/4 of a turn then try and start it. It should at least attempt to start. I think 1.5 turns out was enough for it to at least idle. Keep backing it out in 1/4 turn increments until it will run. The thing that sucks about Nitro cars are the glow plugs. It doesn't take much to foul them and they are pretty expensive. You also have to make sure you get replacements that are the right depth or the thing will never fire.
