Default Revo help

Hi Guys

Im new to this forum stuff so hope im in the right place.I have recently purchased a 3.3 revo and am having a problem getting going.
After haveing problems with idle/fuel mix i read manual and turned mixture screws back to factory and reset optidrive and idle controls on transmitter to 0 exactly how it said.
Revo starts perfect on the ez start but all 4 wheels are spinning and i cant stop them if i apply any restriction or apply brake revo just stalls plus it will only start of ground because of restriction on ground.
Any help would be really appreciated as im so confused.
Thanks

sounds like a clutch spring broke and you clutch is engaging all the time. pull your motor out and take your cluch bell off and inspect the clutch.

Either that or the idle is simply too high - adjust the idle screw to lower the idle, if it won't maintain ~1mm gap in the carb for idle, then there is some kind of linkage prob.

Then its time to check the clutch and see if the spring has broken or come off.

Easiest way is to remove the engine - that will give you access so you can pull clutch bell off and check shoes/spring.
