Bit of a noob to the Nitro RC scene.
Recently purchased an HSP Truggy 1/8 with an SH 18. engine
I've messed up all the carb settings pretty stupid I know. And I was wondering if anyone could give me the stock settings.
Thanks

Beautiful Idaho.
Usually factory default settings are the screws for the most part are flush with the housing or will get you in the ball park. A good rule of thumb is never turn more than a 1/8th of a turn or two hours on a clock. Lean to the right, rich to the left. They can be pretty finicky for sure so take your time....:)
