    The slide carb gives you a huge throttle response and a high top end. While the rotary carb is meant to provide excellent throttle response throughout the midrange bands. That is why you see Slide carbs on On-Road cars and Rotary carbs on the Off-Road likes. Although as of late they have been mashing slides on everything. TMAXX and Savage and such
  3. Rotary carb is harder to tune too, and the slide carb is a sinch, I tune my slide carb everyday in less than 5 min.

    Rotary is actually supposed to be easier to tune than slide, but so far I have not really tested this theory. I guess it would also depend on the motor. If you are using the engine for on road get the slide and for offroad get the rotary.

    Either carb tunes the same. The slide carb has a smoother acceleration rate. Most people run rotary carbs on off road.
