I just bought a HPI Hellfire truggy and getting it tuned pretty good , but i want to know about the mid needle, I haven't messed with it yet, just want to know what it does and how to use it before i try.

Thanks for any information you all can give.

Default About the third needle.


On the link, there's a post I made some time ago explaining what does and how acts the 'third needle' of a carburetor. Read thru it and do a search here, there are lots of posts regarding this, many posts of Motorman, Grinder, and other engine tuners/modifiers.

The third needed is a powerful method to taylor what you want/need to adjust your engine, but is a powerful way to mess it, read and have a grasp of what you're doing. Enjoy.
