If it's spitting fuel and you can't give it any throttle the hsn is too rich, lsn maybe also...put a piece of fuel tube on the hsn fuel intake, hold the carb closed and blow though the fuel tube, you want to feel like you can only just blow through it for your lsn to be about right, if it feels blocked you're too lean, if you can easily blow through it you're too rich...and as you found with the hsn it should feel free-ish when you open up the carb slide.
If the motor is still tight do this test with a 1mm idle gap and keep running a bit rich on the hsn till you can turn the motor with your finger at the end of a tank.
Hope this helps.

Craig.

Could be a tank issue too

Forgot to update on this thread, but it was actually a huge tuning issue I had it tuned by someone at the track, and they told me that the needles were really far off from where they should be.

Nevertheless, I've upgraded to a P5 and its such a night and day difference from that RTR motor.

One problem though, every time i brake with my servo, the servo seems to take the throttle along with it back to its journey to neutral position thus giving the engine more fuel. Is there any way i can leave the engine standing at neutral after i brake?

That's just a minor linkage issue. Make sure your throttle linkage is straight and polish the rod (no comments please ) also drill out the hole in the plastic a little that the rod slides through. Sometimes it's really tight and binds the rod. Man this entire post is like Porn.
