Re: Electric HPI RS4 MT Question

some tips

remove the motor or just the piongear and push the car forward. smooth ??
maybe some bearing is stuck.
On wath surface are you driving are you running into dirt or a smooth track
how long can you drive with a battery. I guess 6 a 7 minuts must be
And also check the motortiming maybe its is bad assembled after the service.
