    Wheels spin when lifted up but not when on the ground.

    I just upgraded To the castle creations 2200 kv and the mamba monster X. I ran some full speed runs yesterday my summit just stopped driving so I let it cool down thinking that I may have overheated and then when I got back to it the next day it had no torque when you pick up the wheels been really fast like it should be on the ground when you drop it down and canít even make it up my driveway I canít even pop a wheelie do anything like that looking for cheap solutions but will do what had to be done. Thanks again.

    Did you try adjusting the slipper? Maybe itís too loose?

    It will. Mine did the same thing when I first went brushless. Big power difference between a stock 775 brushed motor and a brushless motor. Tightening more than the stock setting helps the slipping.

    That's what the slipper is for. To protect the driveline.
