Default HPI Sprint 2 Flux problem

New to this forum .... I have a Sprint 2 Flux that I am having some problems with it is fully custom from carbon to aluminum parts. It has the WRAP 5700kv motor and MOITV ESC. When I put the car on a stand everything works like it should, but when I put the car on the ground and give it throttle its like the car has no traction and cant get going more than maybe 10-15 mph this is with the trigger on the transmitter at half to 3/4 throttle. Its like its revving way up and barely moving. Car rolls free and nothing is binding

I have MIP CVDs, aluminum parts, carbon upper and lower chassis,

wheels are HPI split 6 wheels with X pattern tires.

spektrum transmitter DX2 and spektrum SR201 receiver.

any help

thanks John.

Are the wheels spinning or is it just revving? Check the mesh of your pinion to spur. Make sure your pinion is secured and use threadlock (blue) on the setscrew.

Ck you battery w/voltmeter. Lipo should read minimum 6v. 5.5v a cell is bad. NiMh's should read 7.4 if lower, cell is bad. either way, you have to purchase new battery pack. May have to recalibrate your ESC to TX.
