    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.

    It is caused by a lack of diff shims in your diffs, In the merv you need to shim the diffs or they will break.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    Thumbs up

    I agree with what has already been said. I too had to learn the hard way. A new ring and pinion, fresh diff fluid and shims will get you back on the road

    ...and each and every one of them is welcomed. Complaining about threads and telling people to search for answers ....well not so much.

    IF that was the case they would soon die as no one would have anyting new to post about in short enough order. Now let's get back on topic please.

    "Do a Search" is NOT considered an appropriate response to questions on the Traxxas forums.
    See below:

It's part of being a noob and I don't really like the search function either so ask your question. I am considering adding "do a search" to the swear filter so that I can give points till the "do a searchers" are banned. (It should take about 20 minutes). When they complain I can tell them I made this post and if they had only done a search, like they post all they time, they would have known not to post "do a search". Pretty compelling logic isn't it? All I have to do now is post any random thing anywhere on the board and I can give points for it! This makes me VERY happy so thanks guys! Since you have already searched, you know beyond any shadow of any doubt that if the Chicken ain't happy, ain't NOBODY happy! Do a search and read all of my posts before replying so you know what not to say.

If you just want to post "USE THE SEARCH!" - then keep it to yourself, and don't bother posting. IF you have a problem with answering the same question over and over, then maybe being a "regular" on a message board isn't for you because it is the same on any other message board I've seen.
    Hopefully these reminders will compel those who are too lazy to post something helpful to not post anything at all.
