Default wheels start spinning right after engine start ( on idle )


I've tried searching the board but don't think I'm putting the right criteria.

I've just got a used Mugen Prime 12 which I'm trying to figure out.
I'm starting the egine while the car is off the ground.. and immediatly wheels start spinning. if I put the car on the ground it wants to "go". I don't know where to start troubleshooting. Is it a transmition problem or do I need to tune the engine.

Please Help,

Turn the idol down till it stops spinning the weels OR check you clutch to make sure it's not stuck. Could be either.. shouldn't be that difficult to trouble shoot.
