Default HPI Sprint 2 Drift Wont Move

Ok, so I got this car second hand, and brought it home. Turned on the transmitter, and the wheels turn, but the car wont move. Need help!
Also had a problem with the wheels, but that got fixed on my last question

To trouble shooting your no-run issue - like you were advised in your other thread =

Make sure you have GOOD, FULLY CHARGED batteries all around.

Then do what truraza recommended =

This can be done by pulling them out and making sure they move freely inside the hood.
If you have another motor lying around, try it.
Or you can put a meter on the ESC to motor leads and test for voltage.
It should be set to DC.
If you don't have a volt/ohm meter =
Head on down to your local hobby shop with the car and radio and some $ =
Firebolt 15T motors don't last too long...
And/Or it might be the ESC
And/Or it could (but I doubt it) be the radio/crystal(s) ...

But you won't know what the problem is until:
A) You test the present components
B) Swap each suspected item out one at a time with a good/new component until you find the culprit or culprits...

The principles and procedures are basically the same regardless ...

Additionally -
It would be nice if you would post your findings/results - in the same thread that you asked for help in - as an assist to other S2 owners with similar problems -
