Default Easy Q> for you smart ones!

Hi just picked up a used T Maxx 2.5, really easy question, could not get an answer from anyone on RCuniverse, so hopefully you guys will be more understanding,
My question id, I think I got the HSN settings all out of whack, should I just set them back to factory settings than tune from there?

2.5/3.3 are a little sensitive with needles - meaning a little adj does a lot. If you're making 1/4t changes, prob going to have to get lucky to hit sweet spot where it runs like its supposed to. Tune only after its warmed up and I make adjustments in hours. Then drive it long enough to figure out what that just did. Patience will make it right.

But like he said it's used. Hell it could be worn out and not take a tune. Or it could have some of those little rubber boogers in the needle, or an air leak. Personaly I would trash the 2.5 and convert to big block Picco .26 drop in.
