Put the needle back in and now we could adjust carb. I will try and get a video later this week. I also have to find a 10-3 or 10-4 prop, I have a 10-6 on right now and at just under 1/2 throttle the cub goes like a bat out of hell. It trimmed out with out too much trim on the radio. Only casualty was a solder joint on the landing gear that let go, re-soldered with silver solder so it shouldn't go anywhere next time out.

Typically, to gain torque at the cost of top end speed, one wants to increase the prop diameter while decreasing the pitch. I'd go up as to as large a diameter as a 12x4.
A larger diameter will also lower the top end revolutions of the engines, thereby reducing the harshness of the noise.

good luck,
