Default whats going on with my buggy?

the other day i was out running my rdlogics sho buggy. i went off of a small jump, and caught only about about 2 feet of air. when i landed the engine shut off. it didn't bog down or anything, just came to an abrupt stop. after a few pulls on the pull starter it started back up again. ever since that happened it hasn't been running very well. i'll hit the gas, and it doesn't really sound like its cutting out but it goes kind of like this (please, bear with me on this, lol), reeee....reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. i dont think it is a tuning problem becasue it ran perfectly fine before, and always held a tune. can someone please help me? thanks

mayb the engine is too low so the flywheel stops when you landed

and then the hit made the needles go out of wack because my buggy hit the curb once and the needles popped out a bit

i was thinking the same thing about the flywheel, but i thought i should ask anyway becasue i found it odd that it didn't run right after that. i never thought the needles could go out of whack like that. tomarrow, i'll try adjusting them and see what happens. thanks for ur reply

Is there any dings in the flywheel from the landing?

Try and explain how you engine is acting at the moment. Like does it idle consistantly? Does it bog down when you give it gas?

i havn't yet checked for dings in the flywheel. i will do that later.

my engine has a very low idle. its been like that since day one. and no, it doesn't bog when i give it gas. to better describe whats going on, when i give it gas, by the sound the engine makes, it sounds like the throttle closes, and then opens back up again on its own. whenever it cut out in the past, thats not what it sounded like, leading me to believe its not cutting out, but rather something else is going on becasue its never done this before.

also, make sure that the flywheel didn't loosen up on the engine. I've had this happen before.
