of course not, its obvious something you did is wrong.

I would take it apart again and find your mistake just to make sure its not a bad car.

I've taken my car apart quite a few times to change steering toe in upfront, add the AWD upgrade... in back i've changed the swing arms (during AWD) and changed out the motors prolly 10 times...

and not once have I seen a performance loss due to the change itself. only from the motor change based on the stage and kind.

2fast4u, what kind of work did you do?

The motor mount might be too tight.

faster

Every time I take my car apart, it goes faster!!! Maybe that's because I'm recharging the batts or tinkering with the motor ...tee-hee

Did you clean the parts after taken it apart? If so, then you need to oil your parts and make sure that they are seated properly in the right place. If not, you are getting more friction then normal. I use the blue ball bearing greese for the bearings and RC oil for the motor.
