    Problem: Engine runs fine, car wont move??

    Well I have a brand new Tornado BB that was taken through a 6 tank break in and is currently at 8 tanks. I have been having trouble tuning this car and while running a tank today it stopped moving. The engine will start and run just fine but it will not move at all. After killing the engine I noticed that it will roll forward just fine but the wheels lock up trying to roll it backwards. Could this be a problem with the clutch or possibly the transmission.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    ***UPDATE***

    Problem fixed, it ended up being a small rock stuck in the gear. I still seem to be having a problem with possibly the clutch. It does not want to accelerate properly when going full throttle from a low speed. It will however accelerate to high speeds when I roll on the throttle??

    Your low speed needle sounds to be running lean, you may have to play with your needle adjustments!
