    Mini Summit rear wheels spin at different speed

    My mini summit now converted to a merv is having a bit of a problem. Under hard acceleration, the left rear wheels spins faster than the right one. I confirmed it by lifting the truck in the air. What is going on? Checked the diff gears too and theyre good.

    If the differential is full of fluid, there must be binding in the right rear wheel... somewhere.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Stripped hex or missing pin that locks into hex on the slower side wheel?

    Not familiar with the 1/16 summit. Not sure of they even have hex or pins. Same thing happened to my max and this was the cause.

    Diff gears are fine, new hex. Just rebuilt the diff and filled with new fluid and the prob is still there.. Wondering if it may be the bearings..?
