The most common reason would be bad gear alignment, either the gears were not aligned correctly or the engine mount has come loose.
Other causes could be; bent layshaft (shaft holding the 3 plastic gears), worn bearings (clutch bell bearings, first gear and layshaft bearings), layshaft housing worn or maybe a piece of grit was trapped between the gears.

Firstly replace the gears (they come as a set), then check and double check the gear alignment. Personally I line the gears up by feeling the play on each gear but alternatively you can use stips of paper between the gears and then gently push the engine mounts so that the paper is trapped then tighten the mounts. After your happy that the alignment is correct just rotate the gear train for a few revs. then check again.

Once thats done check for excessive free play that will allow the gears to go too far out of mesh.

I would love to get one of these cars just for the pure speed out of the box!
