Default Kyosho Outrage differential problem

I was lucky enough to get an Outrage in great condition for free. The only problem is the differential doesn't send much power to the wheels when there's weight on them. If I lift up the back end, they wheels spin just fine. But on the ground, the car only moves if I give it full throttle (I'm aware I could possibly damage gears doing that).

I've taken it apart and put it back together, but I'm new to this, so I didn't notice anything (it came with the manual, and that shows details of how to assemble it).

If anyone has ideas about what's wrong, I'd appreciate it!

Here's a video showing what's wrong...

rear wheel nuts tight? the hexes only press on so the axles may be spinning in the hexes. try tightening the rear wheel nuts. also make sure the set screw in the diff out drives are on the flat spot of the shafts and tight. use blue loctite to keep them from coming loose.

http://www.competitionx.com/pdf/vehi...age-manual.pdf There's the manual. Page 15 shows drive pins behind the wheel hex nuts. Make sure they're in there. Kinda surprised about it having pins. My other Kyoshos just press on like Retro said.

hey cool. do you know a place to find the manuals in English? im asking to reference part numbers from an older car (i have an original manual) to some of the re-released cars. the manuals i found on the Kyosho website seemed to have all the part numbers i wanted to see in Japanese.

I have the original optima and manual that I purchase over thirty years ago and it still runs great even after converting it to brushless.

That looks like a Turbo Optima. Sway bars and gold shocks. Nice car..
Found this on ebay. Don't know if the parts #s are in English, though. Guess you could find out for 10 bucks. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Kyo...kAAOSwAdFcUVWe
