Think he means it is behaving like its struggling for fuel. Am I right in thinking that when this happens if you let off the throttle for a second and then power again its ok? I have, now I have got my xv3 pro tuned, noticing the same issue when I get it into 2nd. It starts struggling like its running too lean even though it powers up perfectly until hitting 2nd.

should be lean or rich on the HSN really... Maybe its just a problem with your tranny all together also?

Usually referred to as the main set of gears/case that transfers power to the front/rear diffs.

In your case, whatever those big black spur gears attach to:

I'm not sure what you would look for either, I don't know that rig well enough.

However, loosing power when running WOT is usually a tuning issue.

Just My Opinion...

Hope you wont be bringing your r/c to the Hobby Shop each time you will have problems $$$. Wouldn't it be better to TRY to understand your problem and try to fix it yourself. So that if an issue happens again and again YOU will be able to fix it yourself...JMO but i'd ratter be the only one touching my truck.

your truck may have too much of a second gear. the gear ratio may be too low for the motor to takr
