Angry Hpi savage ss kit won't stay running

I have a savage ss kit version with the S-25 engine in it. I ran it about 3 weeks ago and it ran perfect everything was good with the tunning and what not. I try to start it up again and it took forever to start and then it didn't wanna idle anymore. I reset the carb to factory settings and then it didn't wanna start. Everytime I try to prime the engine no fuel would go into the carb but when I give it full throttle fuel would finally enter the carb. What's the deal?

Check to see if your fuel inlet to the carb is clogged. Also check for holes in your pressure and fuel lines.

Everything is good there the fuel lines are good and I just cleaned the carb. Somebody was telling me to richen my low spend needle so that fuel would enter the carb easier. Idk I'm stumped here.

Recheck all your carb settings, drain the fuel and use fresh. Make sure you have your ignitor fully charged. Check your glow plug and make sure it is good. Look at it to see if it is wet, dry, burnt looking, or the coil is distorted. Start with the plug first as that is usually your culprit before you start messing with the carb needles.
