how long has it set up? and did you place after run in your motor? if not the motor should be taken apart and check for rust and see if anything is in the motor also check fuel line and the the carb to make sure everything is ok.

Dude how old are your 1500mah batteries?They may not last long if you have kept them for a long time.Did your starter box manage to turn the motor?Also if it doesn't start after some time, check if the engine is not flooded with fuel.If its flooded, you need to get rid of it from the engine before you try to start it up again.Another thing is the needle settings for mixture may not be configured properly.If you still have the manual, set it back on standard settings and start from there.If that doesn't help I would advise you to go down to your local track and get someone there to help you.

Turn your car upside down and open up the throttle.If its flooded then fuel will drain out from the carb.

heat the engine up with a hairdryer & it will turn over easier
