I was told that facing it forward can cause it to suck less air, therefore messing with the engine tune. Ive always faced it to the rear of the car. Our little engines with small carbs cant suck as much air as a full blooded race car with their big air intakes, you might actually choke the engine if its facing forward.

Good remark, wisdom is shared here.

The fuel is sucked in by the flow of air wich is also sucked in by the engine. When air is pressed in (RAM AIR INTAKE) it will reduce the suckion of fuel because of pressure. These carbs are not disigned for this. So let the carb suck it in.

Could be that i am wrong tough

what I do and have experienced in 1/10 scale since the body covers a lot of the engine area is facing it forward or down towards the gears has not affect the tune at all. I have notice a few weeks ago on a track that does wear tires out quickly and I mean a new set in 20-25 minutes cut at 63/61 down with the 1/10 scale , having the air cleaner forward’s does suck up some tire debris, just because the tires are on a cheese grader and the foam does have to go somewhere since the motor is under the body not on top like the 1/8.. ( so down or forward is best IMO with the 1/10. In 1/8 I have tried it forwards and too much air flow causing the engine to run lean down the straightway is true, so I put it down towards the gear because the body as the air flowing running off the body design good air to help and not getting too much ram to the INS, so I think that is just about right, IMO

is there a right or wrong, I do not know.....

I believe on the 1/8 Novarossi INS box, there's an area molded into the plastic on the lower housing for clearance for the high speed needle. The top is keyed into the bottom. Maybe that might give us a clue on how theirs was designed.
