Yep try setting your idle when its warm and you want it just below the spot when the car trys to creep forward.... your low end might be a little rich/lean also..... but set your idle when its warm....

Mike, try removing the air cleaner, turn all the elecronics on including your handset and look down the carb throat and see if there is a small opening of the throttle slide with the sticks/trigger at neutral, if you now apply the brake does the throttle slide close so there is no slight gap. If this is the class you can see that on application of the brake the carb is being shut right off and hence the motor will stop. Re-adjust the throw on your brake rod and throttle linkage so that on application of brake the throttle doesn't shut right off.

If you try adjusting just the idle screw you'll end up with a motor trying to rev its nuts off whilst still applying the brake.

HTH

also you set the idol screw while you are holding on full break =), so open it up 1/4 of a turn hold on break see if it stalls, if it does then start again, do another 1/4 of a turn less if you want, hold on break see if it stalls, and so forth. alway tune when car is warm
