My NovaMega .12 really, really did come with the low end needle at 0.75 tuns out. hmmmm. 3.5 certainly sounds very, very rich to me, but it appears that there are some variations here. I checked the Novamax that was n my car during winternats, and it has a lowend of 1.75 turns out and I know that worked on the track for a fully broken in engine.
You could be right. At the factory the needles are set with a flow bench so each carb may be different.

In any event here is the "official" info from the Trinity site:
