Default Volcano SV problem

So i took my truck out today and after about 3 mins it just rolled to a stop even though i was on the gas. Now when i pick it up and hold it and give it gas the tires turn and everything is good. When its on the ground though you can pin it out and it wont budge. Thought maybe it was the clutch but the spring is good and like i said it works fine when the wheels arent touching the ground. any advice? please help....

sounds like the grub screws on the drive cups, the drive cups are what the dogbones go into, front, rear and wheels, check out the screw thats in recessed in the cups.

also check the slipper clutch. The purple or silver nut on the spur gear. It might be too loose. So when under a load, it slips. Just an idea.

Its on the gear that comes in contact with the clutchbell. You will see a bigger gear with a smaller one on the other side of it and a nut with a spring. Tighten that nut. That puts more pressure incase it is slipping.

so i think i know the prob. i bought some non redcat drive cups and they were round all the way instead of the flat spot on the redcat ones. so they spin freely. so i guess i need to order some new drive cups

all stock, only thing i did was put the front shock mounts on the lower most outer hole and the back in the upper most inner hole makes it look like a trophy truck. really it was a compression wheelie, he came off a little hill and hit the throttle and it brought the nose right up.

Ehroof got his volcano to wheely. He used a SH .18 engine, a torque pipe, and a 14t CB (i think it's 14).

that is all changing. I have 2 people assigned to it now. I had to hire more people for the store so things are getting better and better.
