Default Tornado S30 Clutch?

I have a fairly new Tornado S30 and it is running fine and driveline and gears are fine but it will not move. Is there a clutch or has anyone had similiar issues,

Default RE: Tornado S30 Clutch?

Yea, there's a clutch (clutchbell/pinion) on the front of the motor. But if the clutch spring broke it wouldnt run casue the wheels would need to spin if the motor was running.. How much throttle have ya given it? When I first got mine I didnt think it was gonna move either, but a couple gooses of the throttle made it jump to life.. If that dont do it, you probably have a setscrew loose somewhere..There's drive cups at both ends of the transmission, both ends of the drive shaft, and on the output shafts of the front/rear diffs.. All of em secured to output shafts with little set screws.. Just manually turn over the pinion or spur gear and trace it from there until ya find where the slippage is coming from, then tighten up the setscrew.. (and make sure your tightening it up to a flat spot on the output shaft)
