Default Losi 8ight T 2.0: How to get to carb needles with body on?

Where are you cutting or drilling holes in the body to get to carb needles? Any pics?

Looks like I could cut out both small windows on the sides and get to the HSN and LSN.

Thanks!

Use a body reamer on the top left side of the rear window. That spot really allows you to get at the needles, especially an OS mill.

I usually end up going through the fuel gun hole in the top of the body, its not direct but it works well.

I have the giant fuel gun hole in my roof and I can usually get to the HSN pretty easily through that. Just pull the body up a bit on the sides to get to the LSN and Idle. I don't like a bunch of holes in the body unless completely necessary.
