What do you mean by it blew up? Is smoke coming from the Carb 'cause my friend's carb was smoking on his N-Pede and all it really was is that the engine overheated and it was some vapors of nitro too. So what do you mean by it "blew up"?

smoke was not coming out of it fuel does spit out when it over heats but i think the plastic ring broke and the spring on the inside pushed the inside the carb out, and shot the little black screw with the spring on it completely out

Bring it to your nearest hobby store. What does it sound like when you try to start it? Is it sputtering? My friend had that problem and had to bring it to the hobby store, they didn't tune it for him though. Make sure it is tuned right too.

Its sorta hard to tell if something is wrong, in that pic. I think you might have ran it too rich, and it got way too hot. Is the truck brandnew when you got it?

Actually yes I do and I have owned it longer than my friend has owned his because I got him hooked on nitro. My Nitro Stampede also has a TRX Pro.15. Sputtering is when you try to start and the engine makes "sputtering" like noises rather than starting or normal starting noises.

the only other noise at start up is the start clutch going in and out, it is one of the many things that needs replacing

the inside of the carb

the rest of carb
