If you drive circles around yourself at say 10 ft does it run ok, or is this 'runaway' at a distance. You might want to install a failsafe and check that your batteries are secure in radio and receiver pack.

NO. As soon as I start it now it wants to just take off. I set the carbs idle and then it will still do it buy die when I hit the brake. I'm wondering if the rod from the servo to the carb is wrong. Maybe those stops on the rod got knocked out of whack or something?

Make sure trim on radio is not turned up. Also try adjusting the spring tension on the throttle rod.

If your engine is stopping when you hit the brakes turn your idle screw up, your idle screw hold the carb open a certain amount. and turn your trim so your carb is just at where the idle screws holds it open just enough and then it opens all the way.

I got it. Runs like a champ now. How long should a tank of fuel last? Is that dependent on tuning? Lean = less fuel consumption? Rich = more fuel consumption?

This is a post on the vids I madeshimming the diffs but you may not need to shim them and with filling them just take out the 4 screws (have not done a vid on this I may well do one) just be easy on the screws.open up and becareful not to disturb the gears inside and fill almost all the way then put back together still easy on the screws.
