Default FireHammer M/T Rear end problem?

All of a sudden my FireHammer started spinning out. Every time I hit the gas it just spins out. Sometimes Right other times left. If I hold one tire the other will spin. Something wrong with the differential?

Sounds like diff is probably OK.

Sure you don't just have a lead finger???

OK, Without the car running and radio gear on (body off) squeeze the trigger slowly and check to see that the throttle linkages are moving in a linear fashion and not binding.
If your still running the original RTR servos there's a chance you might need a new throttle servo.

If that checked out alright, make sure you have a failsafe and are not using an AM radio. FM or DSM radios only for gassers. And be sure the reciever is mounted away from the engine and not too close to the steering servo (not within 1/2 inch).

Post back with the results and Good Luck! [8D]
