    The losi carb solved my problems. I set the carb to factory settings and have not touched the needles since. I've been so pleased with this carb that I have since purchased 2 more. Now I have it installed on all of my nitro vehicles. I highly recommend this mod as being top priority !!!!! You will not be disappointed. Guaranteed !!!

    Plenty of threads regarding the 3.4 carb; the one that started it all is in the Slayer forum.

    Yup it still a Maxx, it just turns into a SuperMaxx!
    I have 2 BB SuperMaxx's I am building ATM, they will still have Maxx trany's & diff's(till I can acquire some 1/8 scale diffs)
