Default Flywheel help please?

ok guys...so i'm breaking in my engine...on my third tank i notice something weird as i pull my rc10gt up to me to check the temp. I hit about 1/4 throttle on the way up...then about 1/2 for a few seconds. Well, i notice the speed did not increase, but the flywheel was spinning like it should be going MUCH faster. What do i do?

if you need a copy of the manual go to teamassociated.com... you click on support then downloads and scroll down to the rc10gt and you can view and print the manual there. hope this helps you out!

umm, yeah lol
but i just went outside to run all the fuel out of the truck, and i squeezed the throttle the slightest bit because it was taking forever...well, i noticed that the rod connecting to the tire from the chassis was spinning on the left wheel..but the tire was not turning, and on the right side neither were spinning

pull the rear wheels off and if you notice, the rear wheels are keyed. there should be a pin going through the stud where the wheel goes on the truck.
