Hey all,

Just got the Tornado BB Pro. I have noticed that the infinity .18 engine is a little different. I do not see a low speed adjustment screw as on the VX-18. Anyone care to enlighten me how to properly tune this engine...I'm stuck. If this has been posted before...my sincere appologies.

Welcome to the forum

there is no adjustment for the low speed needle on the infinity

These videos give you the basic Idea as to what needs to happen

the 049 is an easy engine to tune bro, lol.. the infinty is a good engine, even though it has a single needle carb once its tuned is a good running powerful engine, not as good as the sh but not bad.

Yes the do. I would say about 99% of 1/10 cars use 12mm hexes.

yes, its better because the exhaust can flow easier. easier flowing exhaust gases create more power, less resitatance
