Default Omega X3 Air Leak

I have a Hot Bodies Lightning 2 Evo on the way with an Omega X3 engine that I plan on racing this summer. The previous owner mentioned that the engine had a minor air leak that affected the idle, causing the engine to idle high and cut out after about 10 seconds. He said the issue arose after he'd handled the engine for clutch maintenance, and that he hadn't dropped the engine or anything like that. I'm just wondering what might cause an issue like that, and if it would be a relatively easy fix. I have some nitro engine experience, but I haven't wrenched on one in a few years. I'd really appreciate the help and advice.
