    Revo 3.3 won't idle! Please help!!

    My Revo 3.3 was running and idling great, then I jumped it, it did a few cartwheels, landed, and shut off. When I went to restart it, it would only run if I gave it gas. I turned up the idle so high the truck won't stop moving, but it still won't idle unless I give it gas. The engine has about a half gallon through it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Crack the tank? Crack the carb? Cooling head loose? Header split open? Silicone adapter torn? Block busted open?

    Go from the air filter to the pipe looking it over to make sure that everything is buttoned up tight.

    I think I finally found the problem! A broken clutch spring!

    i was going to suggest you look at the clutch. you broke the clutch spring and the clutches are constantly engaged. car wants to creep forward doesnt it.

    I think you got it licked
