FX-12 5PT Manual
Read it yourself, it only has one needle, that being the main mixture setting needle.

The FX do have adjustment for the low end just like the usual nova base carb, only the mid adjustment is not there. Therefore only two adjustment needle is present one for the high end and one for the low end.

Got a brand new FW05R coming with Shimo chassis and Carbon Fibre upper plate plus the 6mm polished Kyosho exaust! Can't wait! Any tips you guys want to lend me before I go and build this beast would be greatly appreciated. I'll be running a NS12S3 in it.

The carbon ones break really easy. There s a 4mm version but i havent tried it. I have gone back to the kit one as I have the front conversion and it broke!

Cheers

Make sure you have a good set of screw drivers--the plastic is tough--you need the good screw drivers or you will strip the screws.

I think the Kyosho carbon ones are fine. I have broke both the stock plastic one as well as the carbon one. One is not necessary stronger than the other IMO.

Don't get the 3racing shock towers!!
I went through 2 in 2 races, then tried to run with 2 of then glued together but it still broke.
I've now gone back to the original kit supplied one, and it has not yet gone out of shape.
KFactory one is supposed to be 4mm, so it may be the one to go for if you need a carbon shock tower.

What diff oils to run when I get my car? I'm going to be mostly running on a really tight small track with alot of quick turns. Anyone got a good baseline setup for a track like this?

Use the stock setup. I tried different weight and the stock 10k works the best for me.
