    Hello Just bought a losi xx retro trans for jrx2 but it was missing all drive parts will standard gears and outdrives off a xx work? Also currently have a dirtburners trans in car now will the xx trans be any better? My friend has a xx he has better batteries both have 15 quads (old kinwald winds) we both agree my car is faster acc and top end this was not the case before I got the dirtburners trans(the old gears in trans only had 5-6 runs since replaced) but trans is loud how can that be more efficient?

    Why was it missing the drive parts? Was it used? OR did you buy it from a local r/c shop? The standard gears and outdrives off an xx may work, but you should look into the gears specially for the retro xx tranny, messing up gears in a wrong gear box can be the perfect solution for disaster. Try it, but be carefull, and if something isnt right, dont budge it.

    Hi,
    My car starts fine and idles fine when all of the wheels are off the ground, as soon as I engage the throttle and it goes in to gear the car stalls????

    Any idea what I have broken now???

    Thanks

    PS Sorry if this is the wrong place to post things!!!

    It won't start when it is on the ground, it just stalls, so thought i would start if with the wheels off the ground (to check that it would actually still start).

    I had a reply saying that the clutch seems to be engaging to early and that I may need to reset my slipper. I have no idea how to reset my slipper? Any ideas....

    Cheers

    tunr up your idleing it sound like it wont idle on the ground becouse when the car is off the ground the wheels are turning which will keap the enigne going slightly but they arnt turning fast enough so when you putn the car on the ground it will still idle try and turning the idle up then start ti ton the ground
