is the little gear on the motor spinning? if it isnt, all that needs to be tighten'd is the allen bolt on the small gear.

if its in the clutch, then ill work you through that...

aight cool

i have had my evader for like 2 years now, and i have replaced about 1/2 of the parts on it, and need to replace the other half

tip 1 - dont let your friends drive it, no matter how good they

tip 2 - dont drive in the cold, plastic loves to shatter

i shattered mine off a ft jump the day i got it, xmas eve!!! i was so sad.

but duratrax was really good about it, they shipped me the parts and dindt even ask for the old ones.

so hey, you should call in and see if you can get me some new parts free from your 1 yr warrenty.... :P

here she is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...904379035&rd=1

mine feels like it cruises, however its not the fastest one i have had, my last one was a 4wd racer and it did 30+ no prob....until i hit my car tire with it and it exploded

i run 9.6v batteries, not the stock 7.2, i have been running it for 2 years with no problems. make sure the tires are aligned perfectly otherwise they will wear really quickly. other than keeping it clean and greased, have fun!
