Need new motors? Grind a gearbox? Adding teeth to a pinion?

Hey guys I have a Rastar Bentley Continental GT Speed Comvertible for my son that now only goes in reverse. It has a shifter in it that has 2 forward speeds, a neutral, and a reverse. The reverse still works but when it is in either forward gear you can hear the motor trying to turn but they don’t spin strong enough to move the car anymore. I’ve searched through the forum but can’t find another one specific to this car. Any ideas?

EDIT: I saw in a bunch of threads that cleaning the switches can help this issue but I honestly don’t know if the switch comes out, I tried but started to break the plastic so I stopped.

Maybe the motor wires got lose? Possibly the shifter need clean up or need replace. I have a jeep hurricane that does similar thing. Opened up the motor cover, wires are intact. Opened the shifter up and check the switches inside, forward speeds and reverse all work. Closed the shifter cover and try again - reverse only so it sounds like a shifter problem.
