You probably need a better heatsink head on your engine.

What fuel mix are you running? Do you have windows cut out for better air flow? What glow plug are you running? Is anything dragging in the drive train?

HPI Nitro MT Offroad

this is a pic from the makers site, my car is slightly modified, but basically the same

it uses the .15 standard engine
single gear
all wheel drive
shaft driven (as u can see in the photo), helps when going off road obviously (rocks dirt etc)

i have a modified suspension and springs

soon i'll be buying a new heatsink for the engine, extractor, and carbie

if your talking about my car, i agree, i do have a hard time keeping it going for a decent while due to problems with the clutch and gears, but this is mainly due to the fact i run it on road a fair bit when its an offroad car, putting extra strain on those components

when i'm running in on dirt i only have to worry about busting the suspension or getting rocks jammed up in the gears, it doesnt usually happen
