Default Smallest restrictor for stock v-spec carb???

as the title says, what is the smallest carb restrictor for a regular v-spec carb?

Whre can you get it? I have the 8 and 9mm that came with it stock, but am curious as to how small they are offered.... Are there aftermarket companies making any? Will any other brands (Novarossi, etc) work?

i've done alot of searching but can't find any info........

anybody?

Not sure if this will fit, but it is made for the OS Speed .21, which is V-Spec based. The carb, however, is different.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXRJR8&P=SM

On that page, they state "For the stock 5.5mm reducer use OSMG2476", which is for the .12 TZ carb.

Try contacting them and see.

i have run a 5.5 and 6 before and both of them really bogged down the motor way too much. I have settled with a 7.5 right now.
