Default throttle not stoping

hey my throttles not stopping like it goes 4 mph when i let it go so i always need to hold the brake. But if i let go and not accelerate it well go by it self.

Yes i checked my remotes battery and my cars and the remote settings and how my throttle reciever is setup it all seems to be fine but when i lif up my air filer i still see a small hole where the air is going in, but i cant find a way to close it without hlding my brakes. shud i tighten the thing going to my servo to carb? thanks

When you take off your air filter off there is supposed to be a little gap to keep your engine idling. But the reason that your wheels don't stop turning is probably your clutch,it is most likely stuck, you will have to take it apart and rebuild it. Good luck

Arno: If it was his clutch hanging up then when he hit the brakes and stopped the car, the engine would die. He probably just has his idle set too high.

If it has a slide type carb. there is a screw on the back side of the carb. opposite the ball that the rod that the servo is connected to, that is the stop for the slide. If you back it out (counter clockwise) it should lower the idle letting the slide close a little bit so it won't have as much of a gap when you look into the carb. It is usually a black colored screw and it is at a angle going towards the slide.

When you put on the brakes does the idle lower also or does it seem to still try and move the car but the brakes are on? Try and start the car with the radio turned off then move the servo arm by hand and see if the idle will go down. If it does go down with the radio off and then you turn the radio on and it ildles back up then it is in the way that the servo is sitting in the idle position. Hope this helps.

Good deal. Its always bad news when your stick thingy gets stuck in somthing with the black dot. What you do with your carb in the privacy of your home is your own business. At least you got it running again.
