Bought second hand fusion, is running very well except:

1. Even with the trim pulled right back on the controller the car will only sit still with the brakes on, ie no neutral. When I let the brakes of the car is not just edging forward but full on takes off.

What do I need to adjust, I think it may be a problem with the throttle arm.

Has anyone got any ideas, any help much appreciated!

Try un screwing the servo arm, setting the trim on the controller to neutral, and taking off the air filter. when you put the servo arm back on make sure that the carb is only open very slightly this will allow enough fuel/air in to tick over but not so much that it will take off when you apply light throttle. Plus you will have the fine tuning on the trim.

Ok I have fixed that problem thanks for the tip.

 

Second problem

When I turn receiver on throttle arm goes to break position, when I turn transmitter on servo moves to neutral and then twitches backwards and forwards

 

Any ideas

If u have a failsafe then it will go to brake position, as theres no signal from the transmitter. The twitching could just be the servo fighting the strain from the spring, i wouldnt worry too much about it, as long as it pulls the brakes and gas links well.
