Default HPI RS4 3 SS questions

I finally got my car rippin'. But this leads me to my next couple of questions.

1. My idle seems to high......what is the best way to adj. this? It seems that when i adj. the idle....the engine is hard to start, or will die.

2. The underside of the car has 5 scews that hold the motor/motor mount in place. These screws are rounded, not flush. I notice that they are starting to wear down do to the parking lot bashing i do...are there other screws that I can use that would be flush with the chassis?

Thank you

as long as your car doesn't move when idleing it isn't idleing high I know it sounds like it but leave it if it starts and doesn't move.

as for the screws, I had the same problem, all I know is that they wear and need to be replaced I don't know of any flush screws

Thank you for the reply....but sometimes it does idle to high, and causes the car to roll slightly.

Regarding the engine mount srews, that is poor design. There needs to be some flush mount srews.
