    replaced front bulkhead, now the front tires spin opposite of the rear tires

    Like the title says, I cracked the front bulkhead and took the front end apart to replace it. Finally got it all back together and turned it on and discovered a surprise. When I give it forward throttle the front tires spin in reverse while the rear tires spin forward as they should. When I give it reverse throttle the front tires spin forward while the rear tires spin in reverse as they should.

    Please tell me I don't have to take the whole front end apart again. I've had just about enough "fun" out of this hobby without another half day shot turning tiny screws.

    I'm afraid you will have to unscrew the front bulkhead from the chassis, removes all the axles from the diff and turn the diff upside down. If you look closely at the diff housing you can see a text saying something like this side up.

    DO'H it happens..... you can take the diff out without spliting the bulk.

    This is the BEST info I've ever received on any of my Traxxas toys. I called Traxxas twice looking for a walk-thru or instructions and they said there wasn't anything available.
