Default RB S9 and the carburetor

Greetings RC fellas,

I just received my RB S9 yesterday and to my surprise the carburetor slider is on the opposite side of what I am used to. I can't really figure whether I simply just turn the carburetor 180 degrees (meaning the side with the idle screw will be facing downwards torwards the flywheel) or whether I am suppose to (if even possible?) take the carburetor apart an move the slider on the other side? Anyone been faced with this challenge on this particular engine?


Friendly Regards,

Loosen the pinch bolt and orient the carb however you need it.
