Bad clutch, or clutch bell bearings. Or the idle is set too low.

cheers mate i thought it could be a clutch bell bearing, i think the idle is ok but when i start it with the wheels in the air its like its running at 1/4 throttle and when i put it on the ground it cuts out. so on idle the wheels are spinning quite fast??

Also check the idle - twice in a .21 sirio motor I have the idle screw after some 20-30 min of racing slowly was getting unscrewed. So, when I was with neutral throttle on my buggy, everything was fine, and after the first turn where I pulled the brakes for first time the engine 'stalled'.
A possible cause...

Thank you.

check yout throttle linkage and idle... if you linkage is off it will close the the carb off when you brake.. re-adjust linkage then reset the idle..
