Default Motor idles too high

i m new to the nitro world, i have an inferno GT. when i first got it, it was fine(2 weeks ago). now it idles too high. i have tried to start at ground zero, all three carb settings all in. by time i get get to where the car will start it is reved up. also, fuel is coming out the pipe, that is a sign of too rich. if i back off the fuel the motor will not idle. any sugestions are helpful. thx

Sounds like you have an air leak, check the tank and fuel lines. If they check out presure check the carb an seal it.

use RTV sealant at the base of your carb and on the back plate. If that still does not work you might have a bigger problem.

Check your throttle linkage also it could be causing the carb to be slightly pulled open
