I have a 2000 mini z, just installed the crankshop performace kit, which includes, gear, chain, gov. rod, high performance clutch, and muffler.
Went to test it tonight w/ my daughter, on a track stand no issue, on the ground it would not move, just bogs. Opened the hood to look while giving it throttle and I saw sparks coming from the new clutch. I assume it is slipping that is causing it to spark because the track is not spinning.
Track tension is good, I then put a little oil on the track...it worked, daugher ran it around for about 15 minutes, clutch was pretty hot, assuming the oil was starting to wear off.
Now...how do I fix this issue? Do I need to buy the wheel kit for the rear suspension to make it work good? Or is it something else?
I have no wheel kit on the front, just skis for now.
Do you think there is just too much drag w/o the wheels?
Thanks for the help, I am trying to get it ready so my 4-1/2 year old daughter can try her first grass drag.

I know you said track tension is good, BUT I would loosen up the track and try it again. After that , possibly bad front drive bearings????????
