Default HPI BAJA CARB ADJUSTMENT FOR HIGH ALT

I live in Colorado Springs Colorado at about 6035ft. Any one know a good setting for the carb on my HPI BAJA with 29cc motor and hpi tuned pipe? From what I gather online its good to lean out the carb, which would make sense since the lack of air will cause it to run a bit rich. J/w if any one knows a good setting (how many turns). Thanks -Mark

do it by the plug colour..only way to be safe. start at factory settings and then adjust the H until you get a nice chocolate brown colour on the plug. you have to do a plug chop each time you alter the needle until you get the right colour
