I think I know what your problem is. Same thing happened to me with my RS4. When the power is on the car and radio, check to see where your throttle arm is resting in neutral (at idle). Now hit the brakes and see if this pulls the throttle arm back even further. If you can, that means that when you set your idle, your throttle arm wasn't pulled back all the way and not at rest position. If this is the case, everytime you hit the brakes, your servo is pulling your throttle arm all the way back to its correct rest position and closing your carb. This problem is easily fixed. Take the servo horn off the servo and reposition it so that the throttle arm is pulled all the way back to rest position when at rest or at brake. Then just reset your idle (higher to compensate) and you are good to go. Even if your R/C doesn't have a throttle arm its the same concept. And one more thing, If you have a nut, screw or bolt that secures the throttle arm make sure that it is firmly secured. Hope this helps.

clockwise is higher (screw in) and counter clockwise is lower (screw out).

Thanks guys! I finally got it running right! I ended up going to 3 turns out, and was pretty much right on.
