Arrow Hpi rs4 clutch problem

Hi guys im new to the forum. Well i bought an hpi rs4 nitro and have had it for under a month and engine kept over heating tuning is not lean or anything but it still ran very hot. Tried colder glow plugs etc. no luck. Anyway took it out today tuning was out again somehow tweeked with the tuning and the car started to move forward at idle even at very low idle and kept stalling. Any how i removed the clutch housing to inspect the clutch and it was burnt out. Now what i want to know is how is this possible? 1 month old car, no brake drag, i havent been revving it whilst its not moving. I just dont understand how it would burn out so soon and does anyone know of a performance one that i can replace it with??
