You should read through the topic before asking.

That is going to be rather expensive, as I would be calling from Iceland to the US, or do they have Tax-free phonelines?

I went to the losi website, which gave me an e-mail which I sent a question to. I told them about the problem and asked if I should take a look at the transmission, they will reply in this week.

When you start it up, can you rev it up with your radio?

What Im getting it is that the picture that you posted doesnt have the throttle linkage connected. You did say it was an old picture tho right?

Don't let the picture confuse you, it was when I had lots of things still not worked out. And does not show the current state of the car.

The picture doesn't show the current state. I can rev up with my radio. I can control it 100%. But, if I give it throttle, it doesn't move, like it is in neutral

Ha said the pic was old. From what I gather is he can start and rev his engine and it is spinning the clutch, it doesnt seem to be transmitting the energy to the wheels via the transmission which on this model can be selected to either low or high. I think thats it.

Ok, i just wanted to make things clear!! Now that we got that out of the way, it might be like stated above. The HI option or else it might be your tranny!

Default Let me make things clear!

I have a Losi LST1.

I can start the engine
I can control the throttle and the steering with the radio
If I keep the car idling, I can see all the gears (clutch, pinion gears, Spur gear) spin without resistance
If I apply throttle with my radio (Even at full throttle), the only things spinning are my gears (as stated above), the engine revs beautifully but the car doesn't move at all
Switching between HI and LO modes does nothing.

I suspect the transmission, so I contaced losi which will reply to me in this week, but in the meantime, you guys are free to come up with some ideas of what is the possible cause of the problem.

I live in a cave. I was unaware of this race until I just looked it up. It is the one at Beaver Creek on August 8th & 9th right? Is it too late to sign up? Is there a class for First Year Drivers like me, AKA Newbies? My son is a much better driver than me, Maybe he could drive and I could pit for him. Let me know please sounds like a hell of a good time.

Default Losi tech support reply not received yet

So, I sent Losi the E-Mail last Saturday. They said they would take up to 3-4 active days in replying (that was last Wednesday-Thursday). Now it's Tuesday and they have yet to reply. If they wont reply by Saturday, tomorrow, I will just take my transmission apart and take a look at it =)

I hope I will be able to get my truck up and running, and of course at that time, I will let you know! Also, if I have any extra questions I'll just ask you peeps.

Helgso.

Default Don't you know someone who is a little mechanically inclined?

I would have had that thing torn down by now. You can take it apart and figure it out. Just take pictures of each step and keep things neat and organized. I use little baggies sometimes if I tear something apart and dont plan on building it back up right away. RC Cars/ trucks are not that complicated. Just keep all the pieces.

Default A quick update

I took my transmission apart, and found out my Trans Output Shaft was broken (losbb3127). But luckily, everything else in the tranny was ok.

Here's a pic of the tranny + the broken part. Also, I have a question. When I put my transmission together, I will need to grease it with a high quality grease. Do I just dip every part into the grease and put the tranny back together?
