    hi i have a tmaxx 3.3 4909 and i had to replace some parts on it did not touch the engine or transmission and when i start the engine it seems like it is turning the wrong way becuase when i turn the spur gear the way the engine is turning it does nothing but if turn the spur gear the other way the truck will move forward WHAT IS GOING ON IT IS DOIN MY HEAD IN :angry:

    what did you replace? these engines will run in reverse rotation, but it will run poorly and it pretty hard to do if your using the electric start setup.

    if u have reverse-the truck will not move forward b/c its freewheeling on the trans gears-the engine has to be running and get the rpms up b4 the gears engage and rc nitro engines do run counterclockwise-when looking at the engine from the front-the carb is in front-the flywheel will turn counterclockwise-i suggest a forward only conversion to evryone i try to help w/ t-maxx tranny problems. good luck

    didnt think about that!! if you still have reverse as he said, then it will freespin up to a certain RPM

    r u sure the reverse is gone-is the opti drive stuff still in it. if you disconnected the ez-start-make sure the red and black wires go where they are suppose to go-if backwards-I'm not sure what will happen-but it will most likely spin backwards(clockwise).also when u spin the spur gear by hand-thats the one-way bearing inside the trans-doing its job-thats why the wheels will move if u spin one way and not move if you spin the other.all t-maxx's w/ or w/o reverse all have disc brakes up front.good luck

    Haven't people installed the gear box in reverse before? So a FOC truck would only go reverse? I have heard that quite a few times...
