Hey, looks like you're off to a good start!  That Target red HISS combined with a Walmart Heetseek, would make a great stand-in for the old Sears SMS.

When i switch it on it coughs forward for like 1 centimeter and then stops....backwards too ..The batteries are brand new and i've opened it and also removed the gear cover..seems okay it runs good without the tracks on it but it just does not with them attachted...

anybody has an idea? its a 'mint' target exclusive version

Idk ... it runs pretty good without tracks .. the motor goes like really fast , i hope the batteries are faulty although brandnew or maybe the tracks are too tight

so pissed off.....can't resend it because shipping from this shithole costs a fortune

CAn you move the tracks with ease or are they tight?  Try moving the tracks to work them in, they may get looser and work fine then.

They move semi-easy they are loose-ish but ofcourse the motor provides some force against , i'll try this and if it doesnt work i'll go change the batteries at the store and see if it is the batteries,
