    check the screws inside the drive cups, the drive cups are what the dog bones (drive shafts) go into, on the side of the drive cups there are grub screws with allen heads, they need to be on a notch then tightened.

    Ok I checked athe dog bones and no problem. But I did notice that the small gear of the throttle was missing a tooth would that be the problem?

    RE: redcat lighning won't move but gears look ok.

    Ok I took the the gears out the hole assembly and the was a tooth broken on the 39 tooth geath( smaller one) Also the teath on the 44 are worn down. So I am thinking of ordering a hold asembly from redcat. To recap what was happening, it was moving fine even cam back to me but onc it stopped that was it. I can give it full throttle and it would just set there and every thing was spinning but the wheels wouldnt move. Until I picked it up. If at all possible I could talk to you my number is 209 568 0886
