Default revving out of control and spitting raw fuel

Did a thorough cleaning of my 8ight T today by taking everything apart and then putting it back together. When I started it up, it idled fine for about 10 seconds and then started revving out of control and spitting raw fuel out of the exhaust pipe. What could I have done to create this?

i had removed the pipe, and cooling head

I removed the clutch bell after it started revving up like crazy the first time and noticed the chuch shoes look pretty worn. This is my first RC so I don't know if that could cause this issue, but the truggy seems to accelerate fine. May or not be a related issue.

You could have also punctured the fuel line and caused a leak when you tore it all down. Try different fuel tubing and see if that fixes your problem.

Check and make sure connect the throttle servo. Idle gap or hole in the fuel line.

+1 - if you took off your throttle servo horn off at any point, you might have put it on a tooth or two off. Double check your linkage.
