These two are very essential in making sure that your car is always in good condition thus, the required ratio of water and fuel must always be observed. Lean Mixture: more water than fuel Rich Mixture: fuel than water Fuel Pressure: The entire RC car engine system relies on the pressure effect that takes place in the engine tubes. If there is a leak somewhere, you can expect a poor performance. Sometimes, it won't even run at all! Operating Temperature: Temperature should reach 160F to 270F for better tuning results. Any cooler than this might not give you the result you desired.
Similarly, you should also know the parts where you will adjust, loosen, tighten, or replace during the process. These are: The main purpose of low space needle is to control the amount of fuel to enter the engine. Therefore, it is your accelerator's side-kick.
