Do you mean that when you are trying to accelerate it just winds out and doesn't go anywhere?
Does it smoke a lot when this happens? Is the flywheel spinning but not the clutchbell?
It could just be a carb adjustment. Have you changed any of the needle positions?

Newer savages seem to be having a problem with the one way in the transmission. check out page #27 in the manual. i think hpi will replace it if you send it in but im not sure. call them up. goodluck.

Yes, does your flywheel turn ? If yes, it can be a carb. problem ! Does the carb open all the way ? I had that same problem with my savage. If not loosen the carb and turn it a little.

This schould do the trick.
