    Somthing happend to my car - need help

    Hi everyone

    So after my first run with the MMP 2400 combo i have to say it was a blast! Wheels on demand and the car flying.
    But now after charging the battery and took the car for another spin, something happened.
    When i hit the throttle the front wheels spin first very fast and after a second the rear wheels start to spin to.
    The battery is fully charged and the slipper cluch is 1/4 turn.
    Whatdo you think is the problem?

    The problem is defiantly in the rear right?

    If when u apply power the front wheels turn and the rear don't then it is in the rear

    When i hold the car in the air and hit the throttle it seems that all 4 wheels spins in the same time, but when i put the car on
    the ground and hit the throttle it happens.

    a couple of other things to check as well.....

    make sure you didn't lose a grub screw in one of your rear diff output yokes....that happens to me sometimes and will mimic the hex issue

    also make sure the spline that the center drive shaft goes into is tight on your slipper or center diff (which ever you run)

    I think that you right guys, took off the wheels and in the right one the wheel hub was stuck in the wheel so maybe that's was the problem.
    You can see in the picture the stuck wheel hub.

    Glue the hexes into the wheels and let them set for 12 to 24 hours before you run your truck

    Not really... if you broke the pin that the hex snaps on to then the lock screw alternative might help but it seems like your problem is the same as I once had...too much torque for those little hex wheels. I bought the AKA 17mm adapters and a set of RPM 17mm "stablemaxx" wheels. you can mount most bigger 2.8 tires to them like the trenchers or the mashers or even go for some e-savage type baja tires! You'll never strip another wheel. I had just 2 runs on a new pair of trenchers and they ended up smoked because of the MMP 2400 SCT...never again!
