Default Nitro rc car quitting

When I go to start the car, I put the car on a platform where the wheels are not touching the ground. I start the car and every thing is going well. So I put the car on the ground to drive it. Once the cars wheels touch the ground the car quits.

Please help!!!!

Sounds like a bad clutch bearing or broken clutch spring.

Have you tried rolling the car over the ground? You should hear that something is dragging or even feel it.

Then I'd check the clutch shoes/springs and the clutch bearings.
If a clutch spring is broken, the will stop when touching the same.

The same counts for a bad clutch bearing.

am sure this problem due to the clutch bearing. You must replace the clutch bearing. If you know how to replace it then you do yourself other than you must have to go RC store.

Thumbs up

Really great (dazablue) you have solved your problem. You have done it yourself or with the help of any store? Now you can enjoy with your Nitro RC car. It's really made great fun.
