Default HPI RS4 3 not moving wheels locked and high speed RPM

Hi everyone I need urgent help. I bought the HPI RS 4 3 Evo just 3 days ago.

i started the break in process filed it up and started it, it started with a very high RPM very high. And it just would not idle.

Even if if I kept it on the ground it would just keep moving forward. I tried to tune it a bit by Adjusting the needles and the carborator area too no luck.

on the third time something happened and some smoke came from the glow plug area. I shot it down and now the car will not even move. Itís as if it is stuck only when lift it the tyres move. Please help me I am very sad itís a new car.

Font know now what to do I bought it from Bangkok and I am in India how can HPI help.

If its not moving ,then you probably fried the clutch shoes when you set it down on the ground at that high of an RPM!

You've should got it to idle before setting it on the ground ,via at the idle set screw ,or throttle linkage ,or transmitter servo trim adjustments!
