is the truck pull start or still have the ezstart? if pull- is the engine running backwards? a backwards one way bearing could cause the engine to run (though pretty terrible) in reverse.
is your truck stuck in reverse? do you have a FOC on it? is your reverse linkage hooked up correctly and in the correct position?

My money is on the diffs being wrong. Can't imagine the engine running backwards, that'd be pretty hard to get it to do, if it would at all.

lol it is possible for them to run backwards, it sounds and runs terrible, but they can run backwards.

Nitro is still talked about quite a bit at RCTech. RC Universe is just fairly inactive in general it seems.

The problem with RCTech is the crowd is [b[incredibly[/b] biased and the majority are racers. There are things spoken as gospel over there that is flat out wrong, and certainly not beginner friendly. Cars are talked about pretty extensively, but mostly race oriented.
