Default Rc10gt wonít run. revs high then dies

ive had this car since I was about 10, i am 25 now.
i drove it a lot as a kid and i one day broke a shock tower and quit driving it because Dad was tired of buying me parts and I didnít have money or interest to fix it.. well come 5ish years later I decide to try and start it and couldnít get it to start so my dumb 15 year old self tries adjusting the tune... a lot... and now that Iím older and have taken the time to clean it all up and pull apart the engine and carb to give them a good clean Iím trying again... I can get it to start when I put a little nitro down the carb but it just starts and revs real high then stops... Iíve primed the engine and did every thing I could think of but Iím beyond my knowledge on nitro cars and need help...

You should be able to source a manual from AE's website to obtain the base setting for the carb. Some are 2-3 turns open from lightly seated and others are 4-6. I'd think having the low speed open 3 turns and high speed 4 turns will get it running albeit sloppy rich. Double check with the manual though - every engine brand is a little different.
