Default Any idea's

Hey guy's my volcano wants to cut off every time I go to slow down...

All the adjustments are ok,and the clutch spring is fine.

The carb is open,and is not closing when I apply brake.

Like it would if clutch spring was broke.

The trim is set right on the transmitter,and on the servo.

All new batteries for everything.Does it sound like something is too lean maybe?

Yesterday it ran just fine,and today its outta whack for some reason.

Would the temp outside have anything to do with it?It's like 47 degree's outside here.

sounds like clutch spring, if its good then sometimes when a nitro motor is no good anymore they are hard to tune and keep running, hows the compression?

Could be the clutch spring is weak, just not broken. If the shoes fly out too quick you'll have that problem.

PS: Part received today THANKS!!!
