The clutchbell doesn’t spin free with the E-clip installed? If you’re using a Traxxas clutchbell, you need to make sure you’re using the Traxxas flywheel nut to install the flywheel. If the nit is too tall, it can interfere with the clutchbell bearing from seating all the way. Most of the time, you need to shim the outside of the clutchbell to move the clutchbell inward to remove some backlash. Too many shims and it will lock up. You need very little backlash - .001-.002” is all you need. Pictures of the setup may help.
