    The carb should not fully close at idle unless you want to restart the engine every time you stop. 0.7-1.0 mm open at idle.

    A good tune will take care of that. With any starter - whether on an auto, small engine or RC - you don’t crank for more than 10-15 seconds otherwise the starter overheats.

    The only problem is you got a battery the ESC is not designed to handle. Once you are used to the brushed system or one of the component fails, get a brushless system.
