    My son has a stock torment.
    It looks like he has stripped the gears.
    When he gives it gas the wheels turn some but only if the rear is off the ground.
    What do you recommend for a metal gears.

    Thanks.

    Have you gone in and taken a look at the gears yet? You should also check to see if the slipper is too loose. Want to make sure you cover your bases before you order parts.

    Stupid question,but how do I do that. Can you link a video. My eyes are not the best to see all the little parts.

    Ok.
    The motor gear and the large gear are good.
    The mesh looks good and no broken teeth

    But one wheel turns forward and the other backwards.

    Now if I hold the spur gear and move the truck forward the wheels roll.
    Could it be the clutch?
