Default Tsunami Ultrawide problems..

I am new to the nitro rc world and just purchased a brand new tsunami ultrawide from redcat racing. Today i cranked my rc to perform the break-in process and noticed that the engine runs wide open. I removed the air filter to check and see if there was an 1mm opening in the carburetor as stated on the redcat quick start guide. While looking in the carburetor I noticed that it was stuck wide open and even when i applied the brake to try and close it, it would not close. If anyone has any information on how I could go about fixing this please let me know.


Thanks and I look forward to using this fourm

turn the throttle trim down on your remote or take off your throtle servo horn, centre the servo and put it back on. might work.

Are both the switches on the radio--up--the rev position
This happened to me once and that was the problem--check this first
