Default NEED HELP WITH WERKS B3

I need the baseline settings as I cannot find them. As well no matter how I tune the motor the low end sounds lean- long tapered ramp down to idle after a full speed pass. The low needle seems loose to me and no very responsive to changes. Otherwise it idles and runs well. I got this motor used and selaed it prior to running.

The carbs are junk on them. I think a RB carb will fit.

yeah I have heard the same about the carbs having issues. +1 like said above get a rb card for it. I had a collari b3 basically the same engine as the werks and I put a rb carb on it and it ran awesome. If you need a rb carb pm me I have a used one I will sell you

I put my old vspec carb on it and it runs alot better. Tune is predictable, and responds to needle changes immediately. Thanks for the help. Oh I had to mod the carb to fit btw.
