Mine is a dog on the big venturi, small one supplied is better.Maybe after running in it would be better with the big venturi.
Diesels in general could run with ridiculously narrow venturis - and as long as you stay in the larger prop/lower revs usage, it's a good idea to go down in size of venturis and carbs, as the fuel suction will be more reliable, starting easier etc, as the velocity of the inlet air is kept high, and subsequently the vacuum.

When requiring higher revs (C/L Combat, T/R etc...) and using smaller props, the situation is obviously different...
