    Sounds like the servos on it's way out.
    You might want to check that nothing's binding in the front end like the pillow balls and steering linkage. If that's fine then it's servo time.

    The original Mamba Max was only rated for 3s. I think if you run an external BEC you can run more cells but the internal BEC in the MM is only good up to 3s.
    The newer Mamba Max Pro is rated for 6s.

    If you don't have any mods on your 3906, figure around $300.00 plus the cost of lipos. That would include BL motor and ESC, tranny mods and CVD's all around.

    The newer E Maxx diffs are sealed so you can use silicone diff lube but the 3906 diffs aren't sealed so it best to use a thick grease like 50togo suggested. I used 3M's thick silicone paste.
