Okay, HPI never made a rally car that had an open drivetrain (a.k.a gearbox) due to the rocks jamming in to the gears. So did you buy the car as is or did you modify the car for off road use? I'll go grab my Pro 2 to see if I can help you out.

Okay, another question for you..... do you have ball differentials of planetary gears? the reason I am asking cause there should be also a slipper plate for that type of car. When HPI made the Rally they had planetary gear differentials to put power to the wheels and a slipper plate to handle off road conditions.

its part or the spur gear(the large plastic gear) its like two round plates sandwiching the gear to let it slip abit under hard acceleration.

but i dont tihnk the rs4 rally comes with a slipper standard...unless if he bought one if it even exists.

Yeah I know......so what we do is remove the slipper for a more direct drive system so we can come off the line with some punch. However the Rally's drivetrain isn't really designed for on-road applications, although its been said that you can. So what you did was lower the car, removed or tightened the slipper all the way so that it didn't slip during the inital punch, then ran the car. I would have done it if I was running a rally onroad, so call me a noob. Are you running a two belt system?

Okay, you have the makings of a Pro 2! I had to make your pic smaller to see how I can help you convert....first, get rid of the stick pack configuration and go saddle pack; it'll lower your center of gravity!

more to follow..........

it is a two belt car.

Drifting: is the drivetrain free when the motor is not in the car?

is this your only car or u have another one..if so try putting the same motor in the other car and see if it still happens.

and maybe a good pic so we can help u out

a slipper looks like this(labeled 13)

I have a HPI option that eliminates the slipper. However I still have the planetary gears designed for off road.....
Are you running a 48 pitch gear?
