Default No fuel coming to the engine?

I have an RC10GT, and for some reason, when I trie to start it, the fules isn't comming thru the tube to the carb. It is in the pressure tube but not in the carb tube. I have a pull start OS engine. I have also just replaced the tubing so it should not have any cuts in it. Can anybody help?

Thanks, Jake

Jake, When you try and start the engine hold your finger over the exhaust for a couple of sec, to create back pressure which will feed fuel to the engine.

The same thing happened to me with my nitro rustler. What could have happened is that your high speed needle vibrated loose and lean itself so much that it completly close off the carb. This would induce a major clog resulting in NO pressure being able to move thru the lines at all. At least that's what happened to mine.
