you have two different problems. The engine is reving high because fuel into the engine is being starved i.e. the fast idle is set too high. This can eventually lead to a ruined engine. Traxxas engines are designed to run very rich with a heavy amount of oil to keep them cool. Retune your engine. Secondly your clutch shoes have probably glazed over or are simply worn out. Replace these. There's alsways a possibility that you've broken a gear in the transmission but the clutch shoes are much easier to replace and probably should be at regular intervals. Your manual will explain how to change them and how to retune. Good luck

I have 20hp mercury in neutral can rev high but when in gear full throttle it's like trolling speed

Take the cover off and check that the throttle linkages are all secured to the clips. May also be bad fuel, or moisture in the fuel. I use stabiliser over the winter. With a motor stored that long, it would be prudent to get it professionally serviced.

Hi Rod, sounds like your starter drive is going south. I'm sorry you can't find the first and very best tool your Road King ever needed, but don't despair for a mere $6.50 you can download another one at the website below:

Stealth flyer ii bottom propellor wont rotate. any help on how to fix

Ya, I've got that problem too. I note that the bottom rotor spins without turning the gear inside the copter (I can hear the gear when I turn the top rotor. So I'm thinking that maybe the rotors plastic sleeve was glued to the shaft and that came loose. But I'm a little hesitant to put glue in there until I'm sure!

2004 Linclon LS went to start it wont start makes a winding noise sounds likes its not catching

Sounds like the gear on the starter is not sliding forward on the shaft to engage the ring gear so what you are hearing is the starter motor spinning free. So absent any other clue I would suspect the starter needs to be replaced.

Got really cold now it wont start it just spins like it wants to but wont catch.

Your starter has a solenoid that throws the gear on the starter motor into the flywheel to turn the motor over.The small gear is either sticking on the starter shaft or the solenoid is not pushing the gear into the flywheel . You will have to take the starter motor off and bench test it to see what the problem is. It is typically cheaper to buy a rebuilt starter at the local auto store and just replace the starter assembly if it has high miles on it. Be sure to bench test your new starter to make sure it is working correctly before installation.

Car dies after driving through some water (it has been a week)

I believe you have a motor from GM where your distributer is on the bottom and therefore your wires are wet as well as the distrib cap

Smoke from motor

something has got you motor in a bind. if it starts to smoke right after your spin cycle starts, it could be a bearing in the motor trying to seize up or it's a bearing in the bottom of you tub. if it your motor it will need replacing as quick as possible it could catch on fire. my opinion is to take it to a repair shop.
