Hi Guys, I'm Flunked's brother. Being new to RC models we're a bit confused by the various names given to the different bolts/needles in the carburetor. So I've taken pics on my phone to help make things clearer. (If the photos are not very clear we can take them on a proper digital camera.)

pic1.JPG

pic2.JPG

pic3.JPG

The screw that doesn't seem to want to go back in belongs in 'B'. This controls minimum idle engine speed, right? Could someone tell us if it's unusual for this pin to not screw in easily and what position should it be in (as in number of turns out from the fully screwed in position)

The documentation supplied with the model and what we've found online uses various different names to describe the three screws/needles. So, if possible, could someone tell us the names of A, B and C, their purpose and exactly how many turns out, from fully screwed in, should they be?

Thanks for all your help guys.

A = this is the high end needle

B = this is the idle needle

c = low end needle

Idle needle should be adjusted to a point where the car will sit ticking over but not to high a tick over as to have the clutch engage which is make the car move. Also if driving and u find when u brake the engine cuts this could be due to the gap in the carb closing to much so just tighten in till you can brake with out this happening.

Very bad accelleration from standing start, but power kicks in at about 20mph.
Dunno top speed ... looks like 40-something to me, but you know how we deceive ourselves on top speed estimates sometimes !
possibly 45 ?
Turns - v-e-r-y sensitive - I have minimised the throw, and 50% expo on the radio as well, still goes round a turn on two wheels from time to time.
