When i bleep the throttle, car starts revving off its nuts and takes a while to come back down.. Only happens after the car is warmed up though.
cant seem to find stock settings since the engine is so old.. so does anyone know a safe setting to start on to tune it.
I just checked the Novarossi website. Assuming you have the slide carb the factory needles are as follow:
High Speed Needle - 5 turns from closed
Low Speed Needle - 2.5 turns from closed
Idle RPM Needle - 0.6mm carb opening after removing venturi (whic this engine does not have)
Be careful when setting the low speed needle, if the carb has the "golden" needle on the opposite side you could move it while closing the low speed needle.
To prevent this, make sure you don't have your throttle barrel closed. Of course, all of this must be made with the engine off.
