Default trouble with my tc3

i crashed my tc3 into my tire on my car on the exhaust manifold on my car, it bent it up pretty good along with the frame just enough to make the motor a little offset when you look down on the car. my motor fires right up and sounds like it runnin perfect but when you gas it like doesnt transfer the power it still goes but only like 5 mph and its making a whining sound? what do i need to ?

Wow, had to read that first sentence a couple times to understand what was going on. First off, you need to see if your chassis is bent. The shaft was probably bent too. Take everything apart and see if things are still good. Sorry, there's no easy way identify what the problem is without inspecting everything. But it's a TC3 so they're easy to get apart quick.

im guessing the gear mesh is way messed. and that can also be whats causing the whining sound.

Yeah, the gears sound to be too far apart, and theyre barely touching and just chipping away at each other instead of transferring power. You should also, as stated before, check the car, other parts may need replacement

check everything. NO SHORTCUTS please.

i mean check EVERYTHING that relate to your DRIVETRAIN.

first is your crankshaft.
your spur
your gear
your clutch
your clutch spring
your crown gear in gearbox rear and front
your drive shaft
your dogbone
your wheel

in short... check ALL that relates to your drivetrain....

find where the whinning sound comes from.
