    Merv making noise when moving back and forth

    IF I move it by hand the car moves then stops then makes clicking noises. I am taking it in tomorrow. The car does not move freely. The pinion looks fine. What else could this be?

    fyi, Wrong forum.

    does it move freely when it's actually running? because the brushless motor in it has some cogging because of the strong magnet but that only occurs when you try to move it by hand.

    You could also have the gear mesh too tight.

    unmesh the spur & pinion does it roll "smoothly"? While you have it unmeshed run the motor does it run "smoothly"?
    Would you go flip my truck back over??
