Carb and idle
« on: February 23, 2016, 04:01:53 PM »
What happens when I use a lower or higher car or a lower or higher carb, does it make me pull out the corner faster etc... Thanks in advance

0 - lean
5 - Rich

90% of the people I have talked to on KRP have ran Carb setting 2, its a very good balance, on the lean side of things, comes out of the corners real crisp.

Idle sets your engine speed (rpm) when standing still and you do not apply any throttle. So if you leave it on 0, the engine won't stay on without applying any throttle. Of course, it also affects the engine behaviour when going off throttle and can prevent the engine from seizing  ;)

No, just changes rpm when no throttle is applied.
