Hi There,

If anyone can help with an issue i have with my Jekyll car that would be appreciated.

Basically, the wheels go round but when the car is on the floor it doesnt seem to have enough power to move the car?
Ive checked the gear and looks fine, it has an upgraded brushless engine, the diffs look fine, one of them came out of the socket but I pushed this back into place.

When i turn the wheels it looks like the diff slips a bit and isnt getting enough purchase to turn the wheels, the power isnt distributing itself correctly, if that makes sense?

Full battery charged so thats not the issue.

cant work out what to do..

thanks if advanced to any one who can help.

It could be:

Pinion loose
Slipper loose
Diff loose
Knackered idler gear - these are a tad weak..

Best to just remove the gearbox and take a peek to ensure everything is as it should be...
