no power from the engine!

hi i've just bought a thunder tiger ts-4n sport and it has a bit of a problem.
when i got it, it was 100% built so i decided to start braking in the engine.
once it started i noticed that it revs right up but the cogs do not turn.
when i try to move it accross the floor there is quite a bit of drag.
any ideas whats wrong and how to sort it.

Check your brakes. They might be dragging and that will give the drag your experencing. To test if it is you brakes try giving it some throttle and role it across the ground. If you notice a decline in drag its your brakes so rejust them.

There is also two screws that hold the brake pads on if they are two tight they will also give you drag. Losen them if the first way does not work.
Hope this helps.
