sounds like its either too rich or too lean. try factory setting on the needles which I believe is 4turns for the HS. and flush with the slide carb for the LS.

agreed, also check your idle adjustment sounds like it is set too low, check traxxas.com for settings

you have an air leak if there are bubbles in the inlet line to the carb
