    just a question

    will the front c shaped hubs off of a hpi mt2 fit on a volcano stx? i found some made out of aluminum. they look cool. and another question i dont know if this is normal but should you be able to push the truck without the engine running. it like locks up or something. i only ran my stx 2 times there cant be anything wrong with it. does anyone understand what im talking about?

    RE: just a question

    is the brake engaged, put the truck on and the reciever and without starting it, push the throttle forward and push the truck and see if it pushed freely, then put it back to neutral and see if it rolls freely or now feels like its binding, if it is binding you may need to adjust the brake.

    PS: Just because your ran it twice doesnt mean something cant be wrong!!!

    RE: just a question

    If you look at the throttle linkage and follow it to the servo horn you should see another rod with a little wheel on the end, turn counterclockwise to give less brake and clockwise for more brake. What happened when you give it throttle and roll it foreward, it shouldnt bind then. its most likely something else, the break shouldnt bind when your giving it gas unless its totally out of whack. You would notice this when you drive it. Is is constant binding or like a surging when you push it, does it happen when you push it foreward and backward? Did you check for small stones and pebbles in the gears, this can be a big problem with off road. check the front and rear for binding by turning the front wheels and the back. Sorry for all the questions just want to understand your problems better. All this should be done without the truck running

    RE: just a question

    now i have a problem. i dont think it was the breaks. i think its the clutch. now there is a spring coming out where the clutch is at. and its locked up wont move forwards or reverse. is this going to be an expensive fix?

    RE: just a question

    You will just need new clutch slices and spring, and bell housing. Not an exspensive fix at all.
