Default RC10 GT starting probs/idleing probs

ok so I go to fire up the gt it starts fine but keeps dying so I turn the Idle up, starts fine, then it idles too high, and I can't lower it w/o it dying HELP! now it just keeps flooding out I also noticed that the high speed needle is hard to turn at first, I richened it and it was easier to turn each way.

Turn the high speed needle all the way in and back it out 2 1/2 - 3 turns. Take off your air cleaner, and if you haven't already get rid of that damn white restricter in your carb. With the carb fully open adjust your low speed needle so that there is about 1/16th of an inch between the needle and the spray bar. Now close your carb to check the idle. It should be open about 1/16 when properly set.

This setting will be rich, but she'll run. When tuning adjust the high speed needle first. Don't worry about it if it dies on you. Get the high speed needle set, and if it's sluggish off the line lean out the low speed until the throttle response is pretty snappy. After this is done, odds are you'll need to drop the idle slightly. Do this while it's running so you can hear it. When it sits still and idles you are good to go!

Hope this helps...

Ummm, no. Check and see that the truck rolls smoothly on the ground. If not you'll need to take the clutchbell off and check out the clutch. Take the spur gear off and then the clutchbell will come off. That way you won't have to reset your gear mesh.
