RC Gas car wont move forward

very new to this. I have just bought a Smartech gas car and im trying to run
it in. i decided to give it a short run round the front yard after a few
idles and getting used to the controls.

now for some reason, i spun a corner in some dirt and the car just stopped.
The engine was still running and i could make it accelerate with the remote
controller but the car doesnt move anywhere. its a 4wd, so whatever broke is
affecting all the wheels im guessing

What have i broken? how do i fix it? i cant seem to find pictures on the
net, and the manual is very badly translated from chinese? to english.
There are plenty of diagrams in the manual, but i dont know what to look

Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction

my guess would be to check the clutch, may have burnt it out? that or try running a hairdryer over bell housing- i had similar problem, i am however new to this myself. this is the 3rd week of owning one for me and ive smashed it every weekend out so far lol
fun tho
