    Not professional just cheap Chinese fine tuning screwdrivers so you can turn every trim-pot or coil slug regardless of the type of head it has.

    Modern 2 cycle equipment has to meet EPA standards. In order to do this, they run lean and way too hot. They generally need to be richened slightly from the factory settings because the extra fuel is part of the cooling. Your altitude and even the outside temperature effect this too. Tuning carburators is a lost art. Most new equipment has a crude form of electronic fuel injection. It's only a matter of time before people figure out how to hack them. LOL

    I loaned one of my chainsaws to a neighbor and he tweaked the carb to get maximum RPM and it came back with burnt piston.
    To adjust a two stroke properly turn it out and when you get max RPM turn it a little more until it starts to stutter. The two stokes use the air/fuel mix as a coolant. It needs to be a little rich on fuel.
    You can make more horsepower on just about any engine running it lean, but you melt parts, detonate, or seize the engine.

    Also modern 2 cycle equipment needs his high octane gas because of the temperature they run at. A good synthetic oil to mix with the gas is cheap insurance too. The Stihl synthetic is one of the best.
