Default carb needle o-rings ???

Attn REDCAT ... Between myself and my friends we have 2 dozen Redcat nitro vehicles ... all of these vehicles need hi-speed needle o-rings ... after a little use the o-ring no longer holds the needle from turning ... Redcat does not show a replacement part for this problem ... and I can't be the only one with this issue ... and I am not buying a new carb just for an o-ring ... these o-rings are not normal stock in any o-ring kit ... any idea's Redcat Mike ???

Thanks Chris

I went to Tower hobby and bought O rings for a OS motor's carb
I believe these were the ones that worked:

As per a tip I read in Extreme RC, add a drop of blue loctite to the threads of your carb needles, and they wont self adjust.. Also treat the "O" ring with some "green slime" (AE) to preserve it.. Cheers!

I am not surprised that Redcat has not responded to this post ... they have no answer ... such a small part but big problems ... I have since found the correct O-rings ... and not from Tower Hobbys at $4.49 each ... I paid $5.00 shipped for 50 pieces and they work good ... the size is 3mm ID x 1.5mm CS ... and yes a little dielectric grease does prolong the O-rings from drying out from the methanol ... thanks again for NOTHING Redcat ... after I get rid of my Redcat junk its gone forever ...
