    high idle.....reving without throttle

    hey guys my volcano is reving when i start it up. i took the air filter off to see where the idle screw was and the carb is open about 1mm. i cant figure this out.

    Maybe your throttle linkages need adjusting....
    And ive noticed on my redcat tornado that if i power on receiver before transmitter the servo slowly creeps all the way to full throttle.
    Be sure to power transmitter first then receiver.

    power on the car, and then check the carb gap. if the linkage isnt set right, it may not be allowing the carb to close completly.

    also, it wont hurt to try and close the gap more. If the temps are cold, it will take less air for the motor to idle.
