Poinas has it pretty much.... 2mm from back of idle screw head to case, high speed flush, but low speed flush wil be excessively rich to the point that it may not even start.... I would start about 2 turns in from outer flush. Again as Poinas stated, with your idle screw properly set, you can relatively easily find the sweet spot for the low speed screw. If idle is high, richen the bottom. If low idle lean the bottom.
Hope this helps.

Should get you started easily.

Another bit of advice would be to pop down to your local store and buy some parcel tape to wrap around your 4 year old

i was told the grey head is just raw power... the red head to my understanding is kinda in between the green and orange.. red has good bottom to top.

I have just started the break in on my green top. I did 4 tanks today

I idled one tank on the box starting and keeping it at 100c then let it cool to 35c. Then the next two tanks on the ground doing large figure 8s doing up to quarter throttle. The final tank today was doing large straights up to half throttle.

And I noticed that tonight the re seems to be a lot of oil coming from the front bearing.

Have i done something wrong?

Probably not. It isn't real uncommon for a front bearing to weep/leak at breakin.
Very rich mixtures increase crankcase pressure and can cause the seal to leak. It's not uncommon for front seals to weep slightly even after break-in. Continue to monitor it's condition. If it continues to leak (not just weep) once it's broken in and tuned well, I'd recommend you replace it.

Does anyone know of any distributor that has Alpha Rods in stock with piston pins and clips? I have tried a few now...no dice.

Z852, but it doesn't matter...my parts list is universal to all the Alphas ;-)

I'll check with RW. I forgot he started to stock Alpha parts. I ordered the parts from Twisted-RC, but I haven't heard back from them and it's been 4 days now. So I need to ensure I get the parts before next Wed for PNB.

Thanks for the reminder about Rex!
