crawling as in rock crawling ?

you need to change gearing if you have not done that yet


if you are causing the motor to stall while crawling it will burn the esc. quick

Def need to change to smaller pinion, stock gearing with those weighted tires is way too tall - overgeared due to the wheels and their weight.
