So it would seem it is an 'idle state' problem.
Start by making sure none of the throttle linkage bits are sticking.

Car can be off for this test:
Actuate throttle linkage with hands at cable, and release very gently.
Make sure everything returns to full idle state, including the various plastic wheels and microswitches.
