Default Sirio .21 question

Hey guys, i just got a Sirio Kanai STI .21 for my losi 2.0. I broke the motor in the way it came out of the box, but there was another needle in the box with it. Any reason? It looks like a low end needle, the high speed is short. Thanks in advance... Taylor

Its a turbo needle for the low speed. You should also have a turbo head with it.

Hey mate, does it affect the engine if you run the turbo head, with the standard low speed needle?

No. Just don't turn it as much. I never used the turbo needle. Just cut your one hour incliments in half. So instead of 1/12 of a turn(one hour) turn it 1/24th of a turn. I have the Sirio Evo III CEO mod and the CL7B. Both great engines.

The end of the needle is tapered a little different to give the low speed setting a more precise and smooth tune when using a turbo head button.

A bit off-topic, but the Sirio Evo III Kanai CEO Power Mod is crazy good. I had the exact same thing, with the mod and everything. That motor was crazy fast. It was too much for me to handle.

Anyone could help me out with the bearing size for the Evo4 STI? Both front and back? It would be nice if you could tell me the link to the bearings in Amains too.
Cheers
