Sounds like may be your low end needle is set to far out?It sounds like if it wants to die when the truck is running at idle you might have to much fuel getting in to the engine try to tune that a little and see how it handles?Try going back to the manuals factory setting for break in and then retune the truck for performance,And make sure you adjust both neeldles properly,that can make all the difference in the world.Depending on how much fuel youve ran through it the guys at my local hobbie shop say you should clean the 1 way bearing very of ten and replace it after every gal. I think,but thats why its slipping.take it off and clean it with some distilled or also known as solvent alcohol and you should be good to go,dont forget to clean off the shaft comming out of the engine and every thing related.Hope that helps some,and some one will correct me on any thing Im wrong on or any more info so you should be good to go soon,just keep reading these threads.Youll learn alot!I own 11 rc's and counting and I learn some thing new every time I take the time to listen(read).Good luck,happy crashing http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/wink.gif
