    [V] Hi board people. Sadly all of my carborater settings got messed up on my RC10GT. Dont even ask how.:( Now my engine is idling really high and doing a bunch of weird stuff. I was wondering how to put all of the screws back to normal, at least so its possible to tune it. Please help because I'm itching to drive it, I havent for like a month. Thanks guys, I hope you can help me out.

    The brass one is the H/S turn all the way in DONT FORCE IT the count 2.5 turns out to start. The screw next to it is the idle screw from the looks of it you have it closed ,lets start with the H/S first , so do that

    After setting the idle like I described, set the L/S thats located were that plastic arm is on the side of the carb. screw all the way in then back out 1.5 turns take pic of carb. send. Your truck well run faster than it did before. Take pic of whole truck with body off, motor ,servo , tranny, everthing . RED

    By taking the restrictor out you are allowing more air into the carb. and engine which in turn means a leaner running motor which well produce more power.
