You shouldnt of messed with it without me.. It sounds to me like it took off when u started it and u couldnt stop it i think? Well you need to turn the idle screw.

And did your gear break into peices? Or was it just loose and fall off?

Call me when you get home or go on msn..

Well thats really bad for your engine sense its the 1st tank, But i don't think it could have really done anything major acept maybe shorten the engine life.. But i don't see how the gear could have broke.. Did you mess with the gears at all?

this note is from kyosho :

3. Keep It On The Ground

A-You should run your engine at high speeds only when you are driving the car.

B-Do not put the car on the box or stand with the wheels off the ground and then run the engine. You'll quickly overspeed your engine and ruin it. Generally, the connecting rod will break from the over-revving.

C-Do not remove the engine from the car and try to run it with just the flywheel. That does the same as described above. The engine
must be run with the load of the car when driving.

http://www.kyosho.com/techsupport/runwell-10ways.html

GOOD LUCK !!

Gordon69: Mad Force seems like a ***** truck, How can't it handle going in 1st gear in the air, oveiusly it wasnt going to fast cause it was still in 1st gear.. I guess you can't atempt backflips and have air control when your jumping cause the gears will shatter? And i was considering getting a RCX untill i saw zachs madforce and i chaned my mind about that, it looks so cheep, it reminds me of a radio shack truck. Well don't want to start no arguements or nothing but im kinda pissed, i wanted to drive my truck with him, But how can he drive it if everytime he gets air with it he breaks a gear.

Maan you muste be doing something wrong with your truck because i can have the whhels in the air and pull full throttle without the gears breaking.

I dont think that it will make much difference if you buy a mammoth because it sounds like you dont have any experienc of rcs at all.

BTW is it the kit or the RTR you have??

all i did was start it up and it went crazy cause the throttle trim was turned up to high so i held it up and turned the throttle trim down and the gear just snaped

Hmm the gear mesh could be wrong from the beginning i say go and buy a new gear and try again and if you know anyone that knows a bit of RC s then you should ask him to help you.

The mad force is a great truck very durable and fast.

That sounds like a hard way to learn that lesson. Check your radio gear before you start the engine & always zero the trims on a new radio. Another good one is to make sure someone with experience is around when you're trying to play with an R/C for the 1st time. Hopefully you'll have everything figured out once you have replacement parts installed.
