Hey im having idle issues with my 3.3 and i havn't even gone through two gallons. At this point i have the trx 3.3 out and ready for dissassembly. The issue im having is odd because no matter what adjustments i make to the hsn and lsn, the truck eventually just revs up so much it wants to get moving on its own with no input from my radio what so ever. Is there something i'm doing incorrectly? I payed 600 for this truck and i would like to know why this is happening. Please help! Thank you

I would set it back to factory settings and start from there. Once you get it tuned, it should stay fairly there, but the 3.3 carb can be very finicky.
Also, check your idle linkage. You may have to undo the small setscrew and move the collar back just a hair, unless you can use your trim on your TX to get it to stay still.
When I had my revo, it would hold a tune really well. My T-Maxx, however would do just what you are describing almost every time I started it up. Finally gave up and went brushless. I do miss nitro at times, but my neighbors don't!
Haha ok ill try those things, thank you for the help its much appreciated
Have you checked the idle screw?
And we thought toy grade RC's where cool...
Which one is that?
You can set the Idle Gap with a #60/61 sized drill bit shank or a medium sized paper clip.
Set it and leave it be afterward, you adjust the idle speed by the LSN.
It should look about like this,
Look out for the tree/crunch!
LiPo? Naw NITRO!!
Get a losi 3.4 carb, soooo much better!
