Default Truggy won't move!

I just finished putting together my kit and now im in the middle of doing the break in. When i apply throttle when the wheels are in the air they spin. But when I put the car on the ground and apply throttle it WON'T move!!

Anybody know what it is??

Maybe, since you're breaking in the engine, it's super rich, and isn't revving high enough to engage the clutch fully.

My Novarossi did something similar when I was breaking it in....sounded like it should be turning fast enough to move the truggy, but it wasn't going anywhere. Just took a little more gas to get 'er going.

It's a Thunder Tiger ST-1 Pro and I didn't put the diffs in backwards because when the wheels are in the air and i apply throttle both of the wheels move forward. I think it was too rich because I leaned it out and now it moves, but it only moves about jogging-pace now

new motor to in your truggy i take it, sounds like your onto it lean it enough so the clutch isn't slipping too much, it will get better as it warms up and runs in.
