Default Low speed needle lost!!

Ok heres what going on. I just got a new himoto syclone nitro buggy yesterday. Today i was breaking it in and adjusting the needle screws. O had the low speed screw out a little but still tigh enough. Then when i got to refuel it starts up (after like 10 pulls nomaly took 2) and revs really high then stalls. I looked and noticed that the needle low speed valve screw came out and is missing! Now what? Can i get a new screw? or a whole new carb. If so where can i get one or what else can i do. I called redcat racing(from what i was told there the same as himoto) and they said i can only buy the engine as a whole, and i cant even find a website or a number for himoto. Is that even a company? Anyway its a vortex .18 nitro engine. Thanks!

Try and contact Rocketstar hobbies.... They're the only online RC company that carries Himoto RC products that I could find... May be, they can sell you a new carb or tell you what other carbs are compatible with that motor... I don't know and have never used them before... I did a search for you so... Goodluck and next time when you're buying an RC car or truck, make sure your lhs stocks replacement parts for everything on it... .02
