    Hello, i recently picked up an HPI Savage 25 with the nitro stars25 engine. settings on the carb are junk. I reset it to the factory settings hsn 4.5 and lsn 3 idle 2mm . i get nothing doesnt even try to start. i have progressed to hsn is 3.5 / LSN 2 in from flush to the face. i get the engine to start and idle. I'm dumping a lot of fuel out the exhaust. and when i throttle up it stalls. The manual says LSN 3 turn from closed. i counted 8 turns clock wise before the needle felt closed. any suggestions would be helpful
    Thanks

    hey, the original manual for the nitro star .25 was wrong, I found this out the hard way, they corrected the mistake, but the first manual was printed wrong, I blew up a good .25 when I first was learning to tune because of this. I hope this helps you kdogg!!

    I would set the needles to flush, get it running, then tune from there hope this helps you!
