Default Anyone have any experience with Nitro Minis?

I have had this HPI nitro rs4 mini for some time, and I have only been letting the engine idle in it. I have noticed that the drivetrain isnt smooth (its bushings in it). The front part is smooth, but the rear isnt , its more stiff then anything, but I cant seem to fix that. I am thinking of picking up some bearings, but shouldnt it be able to roll if i push it? Thanks.

I had one too, i invested way too much in it. Keep the car, and don't run it, then sell it on e-bay in a couple of years and you'll make bank.
