    Tornado XP

    Just got buggy. Broke in (3 tanks, 20% easy going up and down a long driveway) and on fourth tank, floored it, spun out and ran into car. Had to replace left front steering parts. Once put back together, we are having a hard time tuning in. The symptoms: Floods easy, hard to start (on starter block with new GPs), idles real high (will take off).

    If you got a nitro that you knew nothing about about the settings. Where would you start? Idle adjustment shows carb about 1/16" opening. What would you do next? Adjust the idle mixture screw next? Then the needle valve? What setting would you start with? We have tried: 2.5 turns from closed for both. Still floods, stalls and idle highs. We (my son and I) have made so many small adjustments, we just don't know where to begin now. Frustrating! Since we are new, step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated!! Mike and Mike

    RE: Tornado XP

    Got the idle down. A fine dance between the idle screw, throttle linkage settings and low speed adjustment. However, we kept having stalling and we could not get it not to take off. However, while starting it, we noticed a noise that did not sound good. Took the motor off to see if something was broken and found the spring to the clutch shoes was broken in parts. Could this have been the problem all along? (Stalling, not getting the idle low enough).
