I'm a newbie to RC Nitro cars and I have a problem. When I run my Shockwave in the grass I loose all power to the wheels. The buggy seems to get more and more slugish until I can go full throttle and it just sits there. The engine revs, but no power at the wheels. I will stop running it for some time and the problem goes away. Any Ideas on what is wrong?
that could be a buntch of things... Spurgear, Diffs, Differential pinion gear, Drive cup (had the grub screw come loose and the cup would just spin) or a broken shaft... so check all of thows things and report back with photos if you can...
p.s. the Diff pinion gear would be located behind the diff. when you pull the diff out the gear will be right behind it, it will be held in by a "E" Clip and the way to get them off is take a pare on Needle nose plyers and squeze it shut and put it in the open part and open the plyers and it should come right off, may take some time and "E" clips are notorious for springing in to the un-known... so try not to loose any... if you do take one off some ware elts, they are all the same size except the clutch it uses a big one...
