    What did i do to my truck? It wont move now

    I took my daughter and truck out today just to kill a little time. I made a few jumps down a monster hill, landed fine, drove around fine on the bottom of the hill, then i tried to climb back up the hill through 2 foot tall weeds. The truck was instantly stuck. We walk down and get the truck and bring it up. Sit it down, and now it wont move.

    The motor is spinning great, and wheels spin when holding the truck in the air, but once on the ground, it has no torque to move

    Im still new to the slash 4x4, but willing to try things. I pulled the motor and the spur gear and pinion is fine and spinning great. Did i screw something up in the rear end. Any ideas of what to look for. Thanks for the help

    With this being the 4x4, i would think that the front wheels would still pull the truck around, so im thinking that maybe i messed up the slipper clutch

    yes even if the rear ens is messed up the front will still pull take the slipper assembly off and see if it is slipping(try it by hand) if so by the E-Revo slipper

    If you haven't read the section in your manual concerning the slipper, cover that before you do too much other troubleshooting. Your slipper is just as likely not damaged, it could easily just need to be set correctly.

    Make sure your battery is charged. I had the same problem, all it was is that I put a drained battery in it that I thought was charged. Yes, I'm new and an idiot. Having fun though.

    the revo slipper is much bigger. It still fits in the 4x4 with no mods but is basically just a beefed up slipper. It looks similar in pictures but it is bigger. I did it to my 4x4 and it works perfect.

    Is there an advantage to switching to a revo slipper?

    Probably not the same thing, but I'm just going to throw it out there. The same thing happened to me tonight after the gym. I was going to drive around the parking lot even though it's kinda dark. Lift the truck up = runs fine. Put the truck down = wouldn't hardly go. I looked at what I could there with the light of my trunk and didn't see anything. On further inspection at home, I took the rear end off, took off the slipper assembly and it was just the grub screw on the drive hub thing on the slipper had came loose. I had put finger nail polish on it the last time I messed with it so tonight I put some super glue on it. I don't want to use blue locktite because I've broken the tip off my hex drivers trying to take grub screws out after having locktite on them.

    Did you actually take the rear end off and check that too?
