Alex Schaffer: Hi, I completely reset my tornado S30 because it wouldn't even start which I believe was due to bad fuel because I went today and got the fuel I used before and it finally started. Can someone tell me a good starting point to start tuning from with my needles? Thanks a bunch

Offroad Joe: Hey Ali, Ive had my earthquake 3.5 for about a year now and it has been great till recently.
