My nitro tuning skills... - 06.17.2012, 06:05 AM

I sold off my last nitro over the winter and like everybody else here just prefer electric because of the ease of use.

Yet I retain the skills to easily tune and trouble shoot those damn noisy nitros.

I had a buddy call me for help to tune another buddy's nitro, and before he even said anything on the phone I said to him, "damn, that's lean, fatten up the high speed needle" (I could obviously hear the nitro running)

So over a speaker phone I dialed in a guys ride for him.

I should really work at a hobby shop...

Like people want to come get their cars fixed and be called a homo, reminds me of Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino when he takes the kid in to get a haircut

For the customers whom want service and to be "serviced", Harold is the guy for the job !


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.
