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

Ok guys just as a recap since it was so long ago I have a Rastar Bentley GT convertible that only goes in reverse. The shifter switch has 3 positions hi, lo, and reverse.

When the shifter is in forward I can hear the motors making a high pitch buzzing sound trying to spin but get no movement from the car.

I have taken the dish and the shifter apart and all the connections seem clean and I even put dielectric grease on the ones I could by the battery and the motors.

My first thought was the shifter was bad but the car is also r/c and when I put it in r/c mode so the switch doesn’t mover or matter where it is the car still only goes in reverse.

I have verified the motors are getting power in reverse as well as in forward mode.

Any ideas?
