    Clicking feeling in rear diff

    i was running my slash today and all of a sudden there was a loud buzzing noise coming from the rear diff area so i took it apart and everything look fine. i took the diff out and there is a bit of a clicking feeling, is it suppose to be butter smooth? I recently rebuilt the diff to change a seal about 2 batteries before.

    that sounds like your pinion mesh


    what about the bearing the slipper assembly rides on?
