www.cmdracing.com has a nice one that is used for the MAC engines. You'll want the fine threaded one.
Hooking it up is the tricky part as you want it as close as possible to the engine.

I talked with Tim and Josh at [link=http://precision-boats.com/]Precision Boats[/link] earlier this week for some remote needles. They will soon be making more. These are small units and will fit inside a tunnel nicely. Recently also purchased several base units from Don Ferrette at [link=http://www.jackrabbitracing.com]Jack Rabbit Racing[/link] that he makes. An O.S. 3rd channel needle assembly is still required to complete this unit. The cost this route is higher than the PBR version.

Mark, I was surprised that you talked to Don about the remote needles. You might want to go a better route when you come up here as Scott VanSlooten is the one making them for Don.

Wish I had known about that. Already have them with one installed in the TS2.

Mark, nicely engineered boat. I hope that you're dragging that one along in May when you come up here!

Oh yea, it'll be one for sure. Think I'll be buying a trailer before the Fun Run. It's going to be tight though. Just got word today at work they want me to go to L.A. for 3 - 4 weeks. Need to learn a new account coming in. If that's the case, I have a very short time to get three boats finished and one repaired.

Scott e-mailed me last week and said that he's changing ISP's and haven't heard from him yet from his new one.
I don't know if he's moving or not as he didn't say anything to that effect but I can't imagine him moving all of that big equipment out of his basement. I don't know how he got it down there in the first place!
Check with Don Ferrette at www.jackrabbitracing.com as he was selling Scott's mixture controls as they are based on the O.S. needle valve assembly.
Scott's health is in a downward slide as his eyesight is going from Type 1 Diabetes. He recently e-mailed me to let me know that he joined the "Stent Club" too. I didn't know that we had a club going on but we have 2 members now. Having a heart attack is no way to sign up.
The BVM and O.S. needle valves are smaller than the Kalistratov/CMD Racing one that I used, great if you're pressed for space.

You mentioned the O.S. needle valve assembly a couple of times. Please excuse me if this in a dumb question but I ma entirely new to r/c adjustable needle valves. Would this fit directly into an O.S. .18 and/or Aquacraft .18 carburetor instead of the regular needle. Is the remote needle assembly normally used to facilitate the servo hookup?

It is designed for specific carbs, I dont know if it would fit in the Aquacraft carb or not. I've got a few that I haven't installed yet (I've been supplying Don F), if I get a chance, I'll take a look.

It's interesting to see this one. Many boaters swear at them yet others swear by them. I've got two boats with this valve and they both seem to work fine.

That would be great!!

It seems that it would be better to have the needle as close to the carburetor as possible for a fast response to a r/c needle adjustment. If you could tell me where to get one, I could just work with it myself.
Thanks for all your help

I found the os xm remote needle on tower hobby but they didn't have the top part of your assemblies that have the servo lever. Did I find the wrong piece or is that the part that is being machined?

The one being discussed is part # 71703009. Here's the Tower link: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=OSMG6460&P=K . The problem, as you can see, is that it is designed to screw into specific carbs. The base that's been discussed is made to hold it.
