Default Motor leaking nitro

Hello all i am new here so i hope i am posting in the right place. Ok i just bought
TEAM ASSOCIATED MONSTER GT pro .22 the isue with it is that it has a hard time starting. When i try to start it i see nitro fuel coming out from the pull start hole and some out of the pipe. The flywheel really has no tension when i hand turn it is it time for piston and sleeve or is there something else going on?
It did start about 3 times for me as soon as i hit the throttle it dies out on me. It has a hex head start system. Please someone help me please thank you.

Sounds strange, but one thing for sure it seems flooded if the fuel is seeping out of the crank housing and through the one way bearing and through to your pullstarter.

It also sounds very odd that a rich engne would have no compression at all as a flooded engine will at very least resist a little.

You need to pull the engine apart and take a closer look.
