Ive tried everything to get my losi 5-t to start. motor has compression and its getting a spark, i keep pulling but it doesn't even sound like it wants to start i even put the carb back to stock settings and readjusted the gap on the coil and checked the reeds but that wasn't the problem either. anyone have any ideas ?

Flooded? Take out the plug, turn it upside down, pull the starter a few times and see what comes out.

If that doesn't work OBR has an instruction video on how to de-flood their engines by removing the carb and starting it. It burns any gas in crankcase but doesn't last long enough to cause any damage.

Did it ever run ? Or is it new and your trying to start it ? Did you install the carb ? Is it getting fuel ? If not getting fuel check and make sure the carb gaskets are installed properly and not blocking the pulse ports.
