Default wide open at startup!

I have a Losi Ten-t and have been running it for a while now with no problems. I went to start it today and when it started, it was wide open. The throttle servo had not moved. I have not touched any carb needles. Fuel did pour out of pipe. I tried it twice and same thing both times. Any suggestions?

It's pulling air in from someplace. Carb, backplate, head, or you may have cracked the block. That's where I'd start my search..

Is something stuck around the servo keeping it open ? Look for the simple stuff first.
