Default Tune settings

My tune settings?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was wondering if anyone has needle settings like this? .12tz 3port engine, P6 glowplug, 30% Byron race fuel. Settings are LSN 1/4 turn out, HSN 3/4 turn out. Idle stop screw at 1mm. The engine has lots of power and speed and runs at 210 degrees. Plenty of smoke out the exhaust at full throttle and some(very little) raw fuel out the exhaust at an idle. It also has a good idle. I never had to adjust the needles in so far to get the perfect tune out of any of my nitro engines.

Congratulatioms for your tune. You are not going to see same tune in the same engine even in the same conditions. GL

I just thought it was kind of odd the needles are screwed in that much, and sure weather has a lot to do with the adjustments. Thanks for replying VWVR6 T
