Default My truggy wont stay running.

I tuned and tuned and tuned again, I'm not doing something right. If the wheels are off of the ground, it'll run, but as soon as they touch the ground and stop rolling, it dies. I'm not too sure wtf is up with it.

yep it definitely sounds like your clutch!!!

check that the springs are in correctly cos i know when i first did mine i put the springs in wrong and it would run fine on the box but as soon as i hit the brake or put it on the ground it would stall.

It was the clutch, a couple of days ago my uncle was like "Look at this spring it came off of your clutch." He was just messing around and we just sat it on this bench that we have. and today we noticed that the metal piece that goes around the clutch shoes was loose so we took it off and it was the spring. So now we got it running and my uncle was driving it around the back yard and he hit this metal swing set that's in the back yard and broke the shock cap. Hopefully they sell just shock caps. x_x

That's the same spot mine broke, but mine snapped. My dad broke his a-arms and his shock tower on his Tmaxx XD
