    You want it so the engine will stay running but the car won't move at all.

    ya, i think its very near fully broken in because when i go to pull the starter, it pulls very easily and fires within like 7 pulls. before it took a LOT more. I ran it around at low speeds for another full tank and it sounds like everything is is good. I just have to now lean it out a little bit because wen i give it throttle, fuel spits outta the exhaust. but I'll get it! maybe post some pics...
