Default kyosho rides on his own

Hello I bought a pure ten alpha second hand and I'm new to nitro and I've a problem.
When I start it (which was a problem as well because of bad maintanence of the previous owner) it is riding on is own, what is the problem?

Might be your idle/tune or bad clutch springs/bearings or both :O I'd start from there

The drive train on a kyosho is so free that this is normal when on the starter box.

Is the car just slowly running while on starting box? Does it run when on ground?

If its just sitting on the starter box idling then the wheels shouldn't be turning, no matter what car or how free running the driveline is. The clutch would have to be engaging or bad bearings binding & causing clutchbell to spin on the crank shaft, if engine is idling low enough then this shouldn't happen if clutch is all good.
Pull the clutch bell off & replace bearings & clutch springs & make sure clutch shoes are good & not binding on flywheel posts.

When i put my car on the ground it is moving and not just slow.
