Unhappy Problem?

I'm a bit new to the rc scene and have a few questions about my little car.

It's a Nitro Great vigor v2002 subaru wrc 1:10,

After the break-in I began racing with a few friends and have encountered problems or not?

my front joint cups. I think thats what they're called. Loosen and eventually disconnect from the differential giving me only 3wheel drive. This destroys what little control I have of the car at high speeds or while accelerating.

I clean then tighten the grub screws but after a while they pop back off. It happens rarely but is there any way too steer clear of this happening in the future? anything I can do.

Another thing I noticed is, well, my car is a 2 speed but lately it will try to change too the second gear but it will jump forwards and backwards from 1st too second or most times it will stay in first and maintain high rpm and or the wheels will spin. So i stop not too damage the engine. Either that or going from stop - start it will accelerate slowly but the rpm will be high and the car wont be driving fast more like a crawl. Maybe somethings wrong with my rear diff or the transmission?

It's a cheapy but it's a start I'm looking into buying a Schumacher Fusion 28

Any input would be appreciated.

Sounds like you could have a broke or bad clutch shoe or clutch spring. As for the grub screws..put a dab of blue loc-tite on them. Vibrations could have loosen them.

ah true true loctite is the bee's knees!

I was thinking about examining my clutch but I was afraid too pull it apart, I lost my disassembly manual. I could give it a shot.

thanks.

Here's the manual for the 2000 Model....it looks about the same. Clutch bell should be about the same or at least give you some guidelines.
