Arrow 2 speed not shifting anymore

ok, i have the weirdest problem now. the car and engine are running amazing! however, i run down my street with the car, it goes to second gear, everything's fine, great actually. i apply the brakes, and i go in my court, turn around, and go back to the street. this is where the problem is. when i drive up the street, it wont go in second gear. now, i didnt crash, or tune or adjust anything. i tried tightening the screw to stop, and then turning it 4 turns out (my car shifts between 3.75 turns and 5 turns out). and still doesnt shift anymore. could the clutch be worn out already?? . the car is great, and HPI .12ss engine is more powerful than my neighbors OS .18. i mean, as i said, all i did was turn around, and it wont go back into second gear. any ideas???

thanks ahead of time,

It could be stuck in 2nd gear. Take it apart and check it out. Make sure that the set screw and adjustment screws are still in place.

I'd take it apart and give the spring, screw etc. a good look over and clean it up. Sounds like 2nd gear got stuck. Does the car accelerate slower than usual or does it accelerate fast and top out at a low speed?
