In all those episodes, the thing being held was actively doing everything they could to escape. Like playing with shields, etc. It wasn't just a "Activate engines."

Also, wrong. If you ran full speed into a crowd of kids, with the kids moving to grab and hold onto you, you would be stopped. Knock a kid aside, kid grabs your wrist. While kid's going down your being pulled that way. Same thing applies to the runabouts. Your carrier might bullrush past, but with every one activating a tractor beam on you, you will be stopped.

Cause, example given says the runabouts/kids don't take any real damage preventing them from simply getting their grip/tractor hold back on you.
