Default my wheels on car are turning at the same time as i tun starterbox on for some reason

hey people i have a weird thing goin on at the moment with my rc car the wheels keep spinning as i turn the starterbox on as soon as the flywheel engages with th starterbox wheel it just seems to spin the wheels 2.Ive tried adusting all the throttle and breaks on the radio nothing seems to work ive tried setting idle 2 the only way i can stop wheels from moving is to lower the idle on the radio but then the breaks are on.does anyone know what i can do to stop this from happening

check your idle screw if that don't work you might have clutch problems ...like shoes or springs could be worn

sounds like the clutch to me, could either be a bearings gone or the clutch tension nut could of come loose.

Is it a Centax style/ 3D onroad push type clutch? If so probably you need new thrust bearings. If it is not check the bearing on the clutch bell.

Check that clutch bro. If you're wheels are spinning, and you're not even at RPM, then your clutch is engaging prematurely. Broken spring, worn shoes, check 'er out!

If all your wheels are spinning when you enguage your starter box then your clutch is sticking check your clutch shoes or most coomon problem is the clutch spring is either stuck or broken.

Clutch thrust brgs or clutch shoe overheated and melted. IMO.

Check the clutch and end bell. Hint : They are touching.

One of the flyweights stuck between flywheel and pushplate. It happens if you do not check the gap once in a while, the gap can go up to 0.9mm and will make room for the flyweights to pop out.

No but he has started so many stupid threads like this one, it's ridiculous. I actually stuck up for him to start with when other people were having a go but it has just kept on and on. There is no need for it. He could have gone to the Kyosho thread instead of starting a whole new one...
