Default New buggy .18 motor 1/10 scale Help????

Help!!!!!!! Son bought buggy from ebay
Worked well for 4 tanks of fuel and now it wont go.
Bought new glow plugs,new ignighter,20%fuel after using 10% firstfor running in.20% fuel hasn't worked yet as we haven't had it running long enuff.
Put all screws back to factory settings.We are getting a lot of fuel in exhaust while trying to start it.Also it will fire with a little fuel in carby but stops amost straight away.Still growing skin on fingers after pull starting so much lol
To me its not suckin fuel from the fuel tank any suggestions?We tried contacting the supplier we bought from but got no where all he kept sayin is check the glow plug.

Cheers Knightryder.

try to lean the bottom end needle a little bit. going to factory settings is a very rich mixture. that would explain the excessive fuel laying in your pipe also.
