Default Nitro RC volcano s30 problem.. (I'm a noob)

Hello to anybody reading this, I'm new to the RC hobby and recently acquired an Nitro RC volcano s30 it was ready to run and worked perfectly the first two-three days... Unfortunately while getting used to the controls and speed I crashed into a curb and broke Both right wheel hubs. And haven't started it in two days, I went today to buy new parts, spent a total of $80 on aluminum hubs so they wouldn't break this time around, I replaced them no problem, but now when I try to start it, it will not start. I turn the throttle up and it'll run, but as soon as I turn the throttle back down it'll stall and stop. So now I can't get the RC truck to start without the throttle being up high and it causes it to start and want to take off at a high speed, and has zero chance to idle whatsoever. I'm not good with mechanics and whatnot so if anybody can help me with this problem please let me know. And I appreciate anybody taking the time to read this. And I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section... I am new here...(:

I would recheck the needle settings, the idle setting and the clutch. I would also check the glow plug.

Thank you for taking the time to take a look at the issue I am having, I have tried modifying the idle speed screw, but it seems to be in the correct position (1mm opening under the air filter) also I'm assuming my High throttle screw is fine as well because as soon as I start my RC car it has no problem reaching full throttle in matter of seconds of starting. And I've tried adjusting my low speed screw but it doesn't seem to change anything whatsoever. And im almost positive it isn't my glow plug because I don't think it would start at all if it was a glow plug problem. I have a rechargeable glow plug igniter and even after I take it off the glow plug the car remains running till I lower the throttle ..and I'm not even sure where the clutch screw is located, but I will look into that because it doesn't seem like anything else is working at the moment. I still appreciate you trying to help.

I would reset the needle settings to the stock settings. Turn both the high and low speed needles clockwise until they bottom out. Back the high speed needle out 3-1/2 turns and the low speed 2-1/4 turns and start from there.
