Check your clutchbell see if it freewheels. If it doesn't, remove cluthbell and servive the thrustbearing. And check the clutch shoes, may have melted the shoes. New into the hobby may have to purchase better clutch shoes. Maintenance and replacing parts when needed. RTR models get cheaper parts. Optional parts and modified parts available with HPI.
