Vx .16 Engine
 
hiya guys - a newb here... bought a RTRLightning STR from ebay...

unfortunately it came without a manual.

can any one please give me the factory settings for the LSN/HSN/idle please.

i have got the car working, she fires uphowever....

1. cant seem to adjust the idle/needles to get it to tick over without the wheels wanting to spin. - there was a clutch problem, - the spring on it had snapped, and the clutch did look a little worn, so bought a new one, fitted the new spring over the old shoes.... should i change the whole clutch out??

2. im also experiencing.... once i get her fired up, she wont ldle properly... and just cuts out me...

what am i doing wrong pleaes?? can any one help??

thanks in advance forthe assistance.

My apologies for being off topic, im new here too lol.

thanks for the facotry settings codokas - when you say - 2.5 turns out, you mean having had the valve screw in fully (turned clockwise without tightening) fully leaning the needle, then coming back 2.5 turns yeah??

electricirc - thanks for thelink mate, wouldnt happen to know where/how much i could pick up a new piston / sleave....

im gonna take the thing apart and strip it down, find out exactly whats going on... so on the off chance they look severly worn... im guessing it would be cheaper to replace just those parts than buy a new engine.... if so is it significantely cheaper? or would i be better investing in a new/bigger enigne??

Correct on the high speed needle
Turn the low speed mixture needle till the head of the screw is even to the lever
