Hey there, just getting into nitro boats and have a question on tuning.

This boat has the .18 Super Tigre engine and needle settings out of the box are 4 turns out on the high speed, and 2 1/2 turns on the low.

It will not start or run at those settings. Seems like i have to turn in the high speed almost one full turn just to get started but has no power, spits fuel out of carb still.

Maybe if someone has one of these boats or engines they can tell me there experiences or maybe your settings at this time that i can work with.

Main reason I am concerned is tuning for this engine states 1/8 turns per adjustment, but at the beginning having to turn almost a full turn doesn't make sense.

I haven't pulled the engine or carb yet to inspect but thoughti would ask around first. Maybe this is normal????

I have dealt with nitro engines for many years in cars, trucks, planes and helicopters. They all seems to have their specific tuning methods and i am sure boats are similar.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Aquacraft Miss Vegas Deuce

I found that if you follow the directions for setting up and running in the boat that came with it, it works out rather well.

Having said that, the placement of the fuel tank makes it very easy to flood the engine, which sounds like the issue you might be having. Try disconnecting the fuel hose to break the siphon and clear the engine of the excess fuel. Then reconnect the line just before you start and see how that does for you.If it still seems to be flooding, pinch the hose to lean the flow until it begins to catch.
