Exclamation Running Problems

After a few mins running and also frok start the car does idle smooth.

It will go up and down etc. And was thinkin that this proberbly an air leak. Im thinking this is the primer on the tank as i know many people that have had problems with the primer.

Im running an HPI RS4 3.

Shall i go ahead and remove primer and block hoel and if its ok, get a new primerless tank.

I pulled my primer out of mine and put a screw in it with some shoe goo. Then I replaced the tank later. I also seal the engine to make sure I wasn't getting any air in around the back plate and carb. Might also want to check to see if you head is on tight along with your glow plug.
