Hi I recently got a redcat racing earthquake 3.5 and am having alot of trouble tuning it was wondering if someone could show me how to tune my nitro or just give me some tips or even if you know someone or yourself that i could pay to tune it for me and just tell me what you did. Any help is appreciated thanks

If Irocc is still racing on Sundays I'm sure someone could help as they run Nitro

Send Blake a pm

Find the stock needle settings and reset them them. basically gould have to close each needle by turning it clockwise and then turn it back out what the manual says. Did you try taking it to eagle ridge  or nbc shavers. Also if it was used put a new glow plug it it
