bogging down at full throttle sound more like rich HSN. you may need to retune your engine.

for the truck running OK for 5 mins then boggs down, really sounds like overheating to me.
most likely a tuning issue - HSN maybe lean. you may need to retune engine.
possibly air leak- check carb, fuel line, fuel tank for air leak.

Sounds like lean bogging to me, runs good for about 2-4 minutes, then you pull the throttle and it flames? Start richening your high sped needle an hour at a time until it stops bogging,then richen one more hour to be on the safe side.

We all have these problems
Go to the Traxxas website because they have the factory carb tuning. I suggest you set the carb back to factory. Start over

That is an interesting point. The Traxxas ERP is awsome
