My sons Stampede has recently been giving way more power to the front wheels and I can't figure out what. I had the back end off, the slipper bearings seem OK, the back diff seems to be OK bearing wise and operates smoothly. When I hold one back wheel or one front wheel and spin the other the expected action occurs...
Now, one thing that I can think of is that a neighbour kid was trying to fix something on my sons truck by holding onto both back wheels and throttling it up. Now I figure that can't be good.
In the process I re-adjusted the slipper and probably made it too loose - can that cause loss of power to the rear wheels?
By loss of power, they still spin. But on asphalt from a stand still and you hit the throttle, but front wheels spin like crazy and the rears don't at all, until the front gets some traction and the truck starts moving. While on our other stampede, the rears must be getting a lot of power as it wheelies off and away like a Stampede should.
