Default Slow acceleration

Hey guys I have a question when I pull the throttle trigger the tmaxx is kinda jumpy (kinda jerks at start) at first and it sounds kinda grindy but once it takes off its fine? Does anyone know what the problem might be thanks Phatman

Check the gear mesh from the clutch bell to the spur gear. If it it grinding there, then you need to re-adjust by moving the motor mount down a bit. While your doing that check to see if the spur gear is not stripped from the grinding. If that isn't it you will probably have to check inside the tranny. GL

Ok first off with the jerking, it could be hesitating from a lean condition so richen the LSN and HSN 1/4 for a start. If your motor is in tune, its normal for the T-maxx to jerk a bit (from 0-5mph) becuase the transmission needs to engage fully before it works properly. It should not have a grinding noise, if it does it sounds like a drivetrain problem. This could be but is not limited to stripped diff gears, tranny gears, stripped spur, or brake binding. Those are the biggest weak points in the driveline that could be emitting such a sound. Hope this helps
