I had the same problem before. Dont worry...
Take out the engine first from the chassis. Check the Clutch Bell on the Engine is spinning freely. If the clutch bell doesnt spin freely, you need to disassemble the engine clutch and build it again according to the manual.
Then you need to disassemble the 2-speed system. Take out both the Spur gears and 2 speed clutch. Assemble them again.
NOTE that when u re-install the 2-speed clutch on the 2 speed shaft. u need to push the clutch right in the end towards the rear bulkhead, and make sure you tighten the screw on the FLAT section of the 2-speed shaft. U may apply a some 'Tread Locker', just a little will do to make sure the clutch stay in that position.
Then Assemble the Spurs and again make sure both the spurs are inserted towards the inside (push them right to the end with left hand pushing the 2-speed shaft on the left at the pulley. This is to make sure there is NO GAP between the 2-speed clutch and the both the spur gears....
Then, install the rest according to the manual. BUT make sure there is no gap in between the clutch and spur gears. U can cross check when shaking the 2-speed shaft if it moves. The shaft should NOT move and it stays in perfect position.
Now, put in the engine and try roll the car forward and backwards, both spurs and pinions should move and not binding.
NOTE that when the car rolls backwards, the Spurs should spin freely.
When roll forwards, the spurs will move and turn the clutch bell.
Hope this help...
