Is it electric or nitro? if electric can you hear the motor spin when on the gas? Also check your ESC to make sure its plugged in tight. A little more info will be HELPful

It sounds like you may have stripped your spur or pinion gear or knocked your engine off-alignment for gear mesh. Check the gears to see that they are still meshed well and no teeth are stripped.

I'd check the spur gear, i'd say you've knocked it out of place
