Default Idle gets higher as engine gets hotter

My engine starts real easy, it sounds sharp, but as i let it idle and the engine gets to 200 degrees the idle begins to take off. I have to put on the brakes to get it to stop. Every setting on the carb is at the neutral setting the manufacturer says to start with. Even if we fiddle with settings, the engine does this.

I am thinking i possibly have some air leak that is causing it to run very lean as the engine gets hotter the leak gets bigger.

Where should I check?
