    Pede will not "wheelie"

    I am semi new to current RC trucks. I have a 4x4 vxl. I added proline thrashers within 10 minutes my truck will no longer pull the front end of the ground either from a stand still or on the move. I replaced the slipper clutch and the problem still remains. Any input would be greatly appreciated. My buddy who was there said he saw smoke from the rear end and smell something burning.

    It might be slipping too much. Try tightening it up some more.
    What battery are you running?

    It's the slipper .. Check the shoes , once you burn em you can tighten all you want and it will still slip .

    Used a new one and cranked it all the way down, it's still really fast just does not pull as hard off the line. Will not pull the front end off the ground. I can push down on it and will spin the tires. It's not slipping it just does not pull as hard as it used to. It has metal shafts on all 4 corners. Brand new 3s, proline shocks, and once I figure this problem out I have fans for the motor and ESC. Could it be a problem with the rear diff? How would I go about testing it. Both rear tires spin smooth and rotate equal and opposite when I manually spin the tires.

    if you are sure it isn't slipping, you may need to adjust your gearing... trenchers are larger, and heavier than stock

    If you hold rear bumper so it doesn't take off from you and give throttle all 4 tires spin? If even one tire spins slower, or not at all, then it maybe a stripped wheel hex. Or as mentioned slipper, or motor or possibly esc.

    Question, on the slipper clutch, there's the silver "friction plate' it's got gaps on the inside. My question is what is the difference between setting it on small gap verses the bigger gap?

    Figured it outi hado the while slipper clutch set on the wrong shaft hole. I had it set closers to the mother and it needed to be in the hole closest to the different. Thanks for all your help gents
