Default Trinity Extech .24 stock needle settings

Does anyone know the stock needle settings for the extech .24? I have the fully modded version if that makes a difference.

If its modded then the stock settings will not help. I got the basic .24 2 weeks ago and had to fatten it up alot on LSN and the HSN. Do not quote me on this, but I believe the settings are 2 1/2 turns on LSN and 4 1/2 on the HSN. No where close to where i have mine set now. LSN is flush with the housing and the HSN is just under flush.

Runs best @ 190-210 degrees, anything over that and it starts to get erratic on the tune.

Once you get it tuned, It will run great!!

Almost too much power for a truggy, ALMOST!!

Hope this helps

That sounds about right! When they sent it to me it was SUPER rich! I'm talking 4 turns out on the LSN and 6 turns out on the HSN. I know that was for break-in, but it was crazy rich! If anyone has the Fully modded .24 and can tell me where they have there needle settings, that would be awesome!

i set the needles super rich after I run them because not all of our customers run trinity platinum fuel.. I was setting them close to race tune but it was to lean for everyone else.. So I decided to make the needles to rich than to lean..

race tuned needles will be around flush on top and bottom if your using platinum 30%, otherwise you need to be a turn out on top and bottom for other manufactures fuel..

remember run the engines another 6 tank rich before going banzai on the tune..
