there are 2 needles, a high and low, the high is the one that sticks out and up(where the fuel goes in) and the low is on the side of the carb where the linkage hooks up to the carb, its a flat head screw inside of the throttle arm. they are the mixture needles.

4 wheel drive doesnt have the greatest turning radius. what radio do you have?

if its a digital radio or another radio there is an epa setting that sets how far the servo will turn, it can limit the amount of steering you have.

1. i dont have that one but i would think it is so you can charge it without removing or disconnecting it.
2. it is possible but when you turn one wheel does the the one on the opposite side turn? if so, your ok dont worry about it. how do you know only one side it pulling?

3. it makes me happy to be able to help others, i dont know about the jesus part, lol.

thats normal, its limited slip, maybe you have the wheel nut a little tighter than the other or the bearings may be a little worn on that side more than the other so the wheel with less resistance will spin before the other one, dont worry about that, its normal.

ive read and watched all of the tuning videos i can get my hand on but its still a pain in the butt. Why is that does anyone have the simplest way to tune one or will it just take some time to gain experience with it

I dont see how it would hurt them if you did, I would if mine where needing painting, you know they make cover for the shocks don't you ? they cover the shocks completely, also what some people do is buy balloons and cut them to the right lengths to cover the shocks.
