Is your pressureline to short or to long, false air somewhere? replce the ful and pressureline and make sure your lid of the fueltank is closed. Good luck

you probably have your lines crossed. They should be routed like these in this picture. http://traxxas.com/products/nitro/ja...s-overhead.jpg

make sure you are not trying to start your engine backwards, you might not think you are, but if you unplugged the ez start you could have easly connected that backwards (red to black, etc) and that would spin the engine backwards.

That in combination with crossed lines could cause your problem.

Try to find a referenceguide for that engine/carb and stick to that. If you want to finetune that engine start by making 1/8 adjustment turns but not too far! You can better run the engine somewhat richer than too lean!
