Default Redcat Volcano Help



We just got our volcano back from warranty repair only to have the same issue reoccur with less than 10 minutes drive time. While driving it out in the desert I noticed the rear wheels seemed to be doing all the work and the front were barely moving. Then all wheels stopped working. The gears are not engaging the wheels again. Engine works, truck won't move though. Any advice because Redcat didn't seem to fix the problem or it's a part failure or something I just missed. New at this hobby.

Thanks

You sent the whole truck in for warranty work? That must have been a fortune to ship and probably took forever to get back. Its probably something simple like a grub screw came loose or something. Im not familiar with that truck so i cant say for sure. Maybe some pics of the underside would help.

Thanks for the advice. It looks as though that was the problem. We live in AZ about 40 minutes from Redcat so we dropped it off and picked it up. No shipping They were great about not charging for anything.
