Default Is it possible my RC is stuck in 2nd

hey there RC tech...
My TRX 2.5, whit new piston and sleeve, starts up, idles fine, but i know for a fact that it has a 2nd gear. i think it's stuck i the 2nd gear :/ I've run the 8 tanks with the break in instructions, i recently just tried for a 2nd gear run,but it doesn't engage, like there was a significant change in RPM, but now, there isn't any.. is it possible it;'s stuck in 2nd? would it even start?

do you have it tuned right? Maybe your hsn is to rich therefore not making the rpm it should.

i agree with the tune.

if your not hot enough, the engine isn't spinning fast enough, and your not getting enough revolutions to grab 2nd gear.

it might sound like its running good.. but trust me, you need it to SCREAM for 2nd gear.
