Check that your trim is not set too high on your Radio also turn down the idle

if your idle is low and your car wont stay running, put it on some blocks, when you start it and it runs with the wheels spinning, and then you put it on the ground and the wheels stop and the engine cuts (this is with low good idle) then the clutch spring probably broke

4146X is the Traxxas part number. It's probably on the first page of this thread, too.

you need to use the stock clutch shoes, or find some other ones that fit, i have seen some around somewhere. but the ones that come with the spring wont fit

I agree
it's not always that something is broke either, sometimes it just needed to be tweeked, like bent drive shafts, just use a hammer and straighten them out. The reason stuff breaks is driver mistakes, and incorrect maintenance, the more experienced you get the less stuff you break.
