    New e-revo owner

    I got a e-revo brushless about two weeks ago and am running 4s lipo I ran it and did break drive shafts but a lot said that will happen pretty quick we'll after fixing that with the upgraded ones from traxxas I took it out this evening and was running it and I haven't did any jumps just few runs up and down the street and few wheelies but notice my driver side front tire isn't spinning when I hit the throttles do when I pick it up I can free spin it kind of like it's not connected but drive shaft is connected so i don't know if it's a diff problem so any help please

    Maybe you stripped out a wheel hex?
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    Front center driveshaft might be stripped/broken.

    Check the grub screw that holds the stock drive shaft to the diff or if you went with the CVDS then the grub screw that holds the drive cup to the diff.

    Putting in the losi lst2 diffs rather than the e revo diffs. Does require a dremel or a heat gun. Been doing a lot of research as that's my next mod when I break a diff. 2 months on 6s and haven't broken one yet.
