Default damn the motor i have!!!!!

on my RC10GT, i have an O.S. Max .12 Cv that it old from my experience. each time i run it, i cant idle it too long or else it will shut off especially when i turn without applying the gas. my friend has a Traxxas nitro sport and doesent have that problem. so it makes me think that the engine is old and needs to be rebuilt or get a new engine altogther. How much does a rebuild kit cost for a .12 CV? or whats the scoop on the associated .15 engine?

It sounds to me like the Low speed needle is to rich and or you idle is set to low. As for dying when you turn that sounds like idle or linkage adjustment. Does it load up real bad when it idles?

what do you mean by load up?

and when i try to start up immediately afterwards, it will not start. i have to wait until it cools until i could start it again.
