Default Is it possible to only run in 2nd gear?

I recently bought a used Yokomo GT4 Pro and have only ran it twice. It has an RB Concept X12 motor and two speed tranny. It seems to accelerate relatively slow, but screams on the top end. I never hear it shift, but it is definetly flying at top speed.

Is it possible to not be starting in first gear? I dont have a manual on the car, so have no clue as to how to adjust it. Thanks for any help/advice.

Yes, it should be able to drive in 2nd gear to adjust it, find the manual on your car at Http://www.yokomousa.com

If you dont hear it shifting, the chances of it running on 2nd gear right now is big, that happened when i had my RS4 3.. i did not realize that it was on 2nd gear but it was.. it screamed at high speeds, but no acceleration.

Unassemble your 2 speed and make sure the set screw is on the flat part of your 2 speed shaft.
