Default wierd?

i have a weird issue where my wheels keep turning like my idle is up(clutch engaging or as such)

losi eight 2.0
however, no springs are broken, correct shimming, tune is very low idle(in an attempt to get rid of it) which of none worked.
gear mesh fine, clutch bell is new, clutch shoes are new, flywheel new clutch bearings new etc
i've been racing for awhile and never really had this come up before...

any ideas?

As far as I know losi 8ights have about the least drag drivetrainS on the market. You can take the buggy roll it as fast as you can and keep it off the ground and the tires will roll longer than almost anything out. I wouldn't worry about it if you have checked everything

Are your wheels off the ground when they are turning? I ask because my wheels turn as well when idling off the ground but not all the time as far as I know it's normal. When you put it down on the ground does it still move? or does it sit still and idle? I would say all of this is perfectly normal.
