Revo Problem!!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

i got a problem with my revo i think it might be the clutch but i am just checking before i go buy one. the problem is when i start my car and give it throttle the engine revs high but the car moves really slow. when i spin the spur gear all the tires move so i think that means that everything should be okay with the tranny and diffs. has anyone else had this problem or knows how to fix it?

Yes, I also think it's the slipper clutch might need to tighten it up a bit or it's worn out.

Slipper maybe

Had this problem for a bit and smoked many a diff before figuring out.

First, likely a slipper but,

Check the drive cup on the diff. Ensure there is NO slippage there. On load, they may let loose and all that drive to the other wheel willl smoke the diff VERY quickly.

Good luck.
