    My center transmission?

    So here is a video of my issue.... I was bashing when a whine came, and my truck wouldn't move. It barely spins the drive shafts, so I removed it to find that there is little resistance when I turn it with my hand. I opened the tranny and everything is fine....

    the resistance is from the slipper, because you have the tranny holded from one side, it should spin without a prob in your hand.

    looks like you could have a busted gear shaft pin. this would let one of the internal gears spin freely on its shaft when its supposed to make the shaft itself spin.

    are those the 3.3 diff??............ if so, I would look at the diffs.

    the trans is turning with throttle, so trans might be ok.....
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    I can spin the metal gear with little effort independent of the plastic gear:

    ohh, the tranny is from the nitro truck, it seems you need to lock the metal part, you can drill a hole put a pint through, and seal it. Also I've people who put jb weld it on it or get an new tranny from the electric version. this is from the jato, but that's the idea.

    never dealt with the revo tranny before, but you need to make sure there is no slippage between the gears, and the metal part.

    Yep that was it! I'll post photos once I get some supplies together. It's a cheap fix, thank goodness!

    What about changing to the erevo gear-set should be a cheap enough fix.
