On the carb question, in a TR-4 with the HS-6's, we ended up with a
.104 jet (drilled out), and RB or RC needles. Those are the richest
needles, and we drilled out the jet on top of it. I think in the end
we had custom needles that were like the RB at low end and the RC at high end.
Dunno how that transfers to the GT-6, tho.
