I have a new hpi fire storm with about 8 tanks through it and now I cant get it to idle for some reason. The only way it will start is if i give it full throttle trim. What do you think is going on?

Check all your fuel lines... I had the same problem on my mt2 18ss.. I replaced the fuel tubing and it fired up first pull. It doesn't take much for air to get by sloppy connection where the fuel line plugs into the tank or the carb.
