Default My MT(Revo) wont stop rolling

I adjusted the throttle linkage, lowered my throttle trim but it still rolls.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Pull the clutch bell off and have a look at your clutch shoes and spring. If you have any doubts they are good, replace them. The stock shoes and spring are pretty cheap.

It is not rolling down hill is it.. Sorry, the only thing i could think of is one of your clutch springs is loose or broken and it will rub at low rpms.

UPDATE:

I took the motor out. I stressed out before doing it not knowing what to expect but YAY!!!

I found out the problem.

The problem was a broken clutch spring inside the clutch bell. I also cleaned out the dirty clutch bell.

You know what, fixing a car and taking a car apart are part of the RC hobby fun.

As a kid, I just wanted to race and bash and dreaded fixing or breaking anything.

Now, I learn a lot and have fun fixing my truck.

I am glad you found the problem. Atleast the Revo is pretty easy to work on once you figure out just how it comes apart.
