oh no, that sounds more like a slipping clutch, i solved the problem, and it was just because i didnt have one of my battery grounds tight, the transmision one. pulling hard again, i will go tomorrow to race, hope it runs strong xD hehe

You better run under 16 seconds! lol. I had a small black wire from the negative side come lose and it caused major lose in power and the car even died once.
