ur gonna have to be more specific....it could be a wide range of things...it could be something as simple as the reciver batteries being dead. or it could be you melted your clutch shoes.

tell me what happens when you hit the throttle. does the motor speed up. or does it do nothing

feel free to email me

casue i will more than likly answer to that

hmm...if the engine revs id check to make sure the clutch bell is still there....ive had that happen before...then is ur spur gear stripped???....taht could be it to....and im not familar wit the TQ...does it have reverse...i know occosianly on my maxx it gets stuck in a nuetral position.and it will go newere....flip it in and out of reverse if equiped. if it is none of the above id bet on it being your clutch shoes. although ive never seen them go bad so fast

you need to look at your spur gear...its the main gear that should be over by the motor..does it have alot of teeth or does it look smooth.........also try holding your truck up off the ground and give it gas..do the weels spin
????????

check to see if you need to tighten up the spurr gear. Sometimes they get loose and neet to be readjusted before they will engage enough.

I'm not too familiar with either truck but if they have a two speed trans then there is a one way bearing in there that could be slipping.

It does have a two speed trans. could someone tell me how to adjust the bearing or spurr gear? it looks as though i have to take the spurr gear and stuff off in order to adjust it i'm i right?
