Nitro Sport Starting Issue

Hi guys, Im very new to Nitro cars and need a little help.
I recently bought a used Nitro Sport from ebay, the truck is in very good condition but it just will not start, owner assures me it started 5 weeks ago. Here is what I have tried.

1) Priming via holding finger over exhaust
2) Tested glow plug
3) tested fuel lines and tank

I do not know what else to do, it uses the EZstart system, please help this is very frustrating because I do not have a hobby shop or anything nearby to help.

Can you see fuel moving up the line into the carb? Priming is much more effective by holding your finger over the carb than the exhaust.

It sounds like you've got a pin hole leak in the line to the carb, or the carb is gummed up internally.
