Default There something wrong with my car help?

Hi, I am new to the forums, and I have a 1:10 scale 4WD Subaru WRX RC Car. It is pictured on this post. For some reason the gears lock up and randomly they wont spin. It is stock everything except I run a 7.2V 4300mAH battery (which is amazing). And I dont know why it does this can someone give me help on what to do? I would really appreciate it.

dissconnect your motr and spint the drive train and see if it locks up at any certain point you may have a bad bearing or broken gear tooth.

Also check the motor you may be hanging a brush do to wear or debris.

"Racing is about the journey not the destination if it wasn't it would simply be called Arriving"

"The solution is people need to spend more of their efforts on promoting and finding more people to race with, rather then a personal quest to form a class that they can win at."

check your gears like black said. shouldn't be a hung brush as that doesn't cause your motor to freeze up. also check your outdrives for pins coming off causing the wheels not to spin
