Why do people not like the CNS carbs on the HT engines? Is it a tuning issue or a reliability issue? They look deluxe. Are they hard to jet correctly?

Much tougher to tune correctly. The speed and rt carbs are simple, the cns not so much.
If you have the experience and patience, the cns can give good results.

Today I had a metal shop weld an arnold/briggs muffler to the end of my stock muffler. Dampens the exhaust noise considerably. Now the intake noise is noticeable. Thinking about implementing some kind of airbox to quiet it down, although I must say I like how it's sounding right now. I also changed out my kickstand for a center stand.

the ONLY way to tune the cns is the jets either buy or drill them you cant adjust the needle or anything .... i know on rc cars mine has a high speed needle valve im not shure if the rt carb does.....

If your like me and running a stock gas tank ...you have probably had " The bumpy road gas spilling out of the sealed cap blues" like I have as well well after painting my tank for the third time and having gas splash out of the sealed cap AGAIN.. I looked up ahead at the remaining 2 miles of bumpy road ahead of me and I got tired of that splashing gas b.s.

And as we all know "Necessity is the mother of invention"

I took a sock right off my foot placed it over the cap and cut it . so there was only about an inch of material around the protruding fill hole. Not above it as small material may fall in tank causing an unwelcome pluggage" Then I made a few passes around the sock top with some electrical tape & put what was left of my sock back on my foot.." it was cold out" replace the cap on the tank and presto.. never had a drop splash out again and its been around 6 months since i've done it & I only wanted to get the 2 miles down the bumpy road I also drilled a hole into the cap "off of the tank of course" slipped a rubber grommet in it and then stuffed a rubber hose in that... for a vent
