Default Clutch of Ofna Ultra LX Comp slips too much

Hey guys,
I bought an Ofna Ultra LX Comp RTR buggy and ran it today and noticed that the engine's clutch slips too much. The car has no power as a result.

Any ideas how to get more grip out of the clutch?

tnx

Your clutch shoes are worn.This happens when your idle is set to high as a result the clutchbell will spin and this will engage the clutch shoes.

You could try taking the shoes and lightly sanding the outside of them and the inside of the clutchbell.
