Default My car moves when it's idling

My nitro buggy moves when I'm idling it, it goes like 7-10 if I have a 1 mm gap, I have to close the carb gap to almost nothing or else it rips down the road, is it the clutch or is my tuning just off, is the gap in the picture too small or do I I have to buy something[ATTACH]2210785[/IMG]

The idle gap starting point should be 0.5-0.6mm. 1mm is WAY too big. If the car doesn't move when the idle gap is .5-.6mm, then you're good. If it does, you may need to replace a broken clutch spring.
