Default Car struggles to move at lower rpm problem

I've got a problem with my v-one rr where it either doesnt move or struggles to move when i just give it a little bit of throttle. I have to open up the throttle fully for it to get moving.

Could anyone help me identify this problem?

Cheers.

Check the centac clutch spring. It could be too much spring pressure, so the clutch engages at higher rpm.

Yup, maybe your centax spring's tension is too tight. You need to measure the depth of centax spring locknut that determine the tension. Usually 0.6 - 0.8mm.

However, if you expect RC car to move like a real car ( moving smoothly with very little rpm ) then it won't work that way. RC cars need some reasonable rpm to engage the centax clutch. Too early you feel engine is bogging ( lame ) and too late the engine would scream and your car is too punchy to drive.

if it doesnt turn out to be the clutch setup id suspect that the engine has been overheated or worn out, when a engine overheats it looses power especially at bottom end,
