SOURCE: When i hit the gas the engine goes but the truck barely moves

If the engine revs up and the truck barely moves either the clutch shoes are not engaging the clutch bell or the slipper clutch is loose and is slipping too much.

You can get them from Traxxas directly. I think that you may be able to download them from their website.

T maxx 3.3 will start rate up but will not run at all but if i pick it up all 4 tire's spinn like mad but when put down just sits there and runs and smokes but will not move HELP PLZ!!


Check to make sure you don't have a bad servo. When you pick it up the wheels will spin just do to the amount of power the little engine is putting out. Put when you pull the trigger do they go faster? If not then the check these

1. make sure your trims are set correctly on the remote
2. you are on the right frequency - usually there are 3 settings..frequency can be checked by making the tires move side to side also.
3. if you have the trim set right, and the right frequency then you may need to replace the servo

Traxxas 2.5 is overheating


wow, 315 degrees is way too hot. one way to fix that is to turn the high speed needle out 4 1/2 turns from all the way in. this will help fix the stalling problem and the heat.

I took my traxxas t maxx 2.5 to the beach and started it up. It ran well for the first 5 minutes then ran prettly bad. When the t maxx was stopped and I gave it wide open throttle it would barley get up to...


Firstly the engine could have breathed in some sand from the beach thus causing the lack of power , it could also be that the glow plug requires changing too, this is a common problem on nitro cars, especially when the engine gets too hot and doesnt get much cooling. Reset to factory settings on the carb(see your manual or download one) then restart , also make sure you are using the correct fuel , it must be 20% nitro. Lastly for the replacement from 2.5 to 3.3 yes you can do it . all you have to do is unbolt the old 2.5 replace with the 3.3 plumb in and wire is as before , check the messing on the spur gear. though be cautious not to over rev the engine as you will strip the spur gear.

My t maxx 2.5 is driving and steering by itself. when the engine isnt running everything works fine, but as soon as i start it it drives and steers and i have no control. ive taken it to many places...


Sounds like an antenna problem. Make sure the antenna is isolated from any metal of the chassis or engine. Also make sure the antenna is not damaged anywhere. You could try purchasing crystals on a different frequency, but I think that it is more likely a mechanical issue.
