Well you're definitely right about that!
Sounds to me like you have some other problem. Even if your R40 was stuck in first gear (or even second gear), it should out run your Savage.
Is your motor tuned? I bet you could lean it out abit. Or maybe the drive train has some serious drag. Is the brake releasing when you hit the throttle? Maybe the clutch isn't working properly.
These are a few things to look at. I wouldn't assume that the two speed is the problem.
