So........got my mini Revo yesterday, finally got a chance to run it today. About halfway through the first run, I take a little jump and cartwheel it in the grass-not bad, maybe two revs and it stops. Starts making a clicking sound from the front end after that, I though I stripped the front diff already....turns out, the driveshaft from the trans to the front diff threw the metal portion of the u-joint completely out of the shaft-couldn't find it anywhere. Dug out some spare parts, stole one from a Rustler driveshaft and crammed it in there. The studs were a little long (maybe 1/16" sticking out on all 4 corners), but once bolted back together it clears everything-can't help but think the extra length may help prevent reoccurrence. Guess I need to practice jumping this thing to get the hang of it :rolleyes: .
