Default Warhead gurgles air leak mabey?

Ok got the new motor from duratrax and broke it in. I notice it make a gurgle sound when i accelerate and it wont idle at all. Could this be the carb leaking? If so how do i test for leaks?

yeah, sounds rich. Check your needle settings. An air leak will normally make it run lean. Do you have a temp guage to test the temp?
