    Looks like something is bound up in either the tranny or drive train. Start by pulling a drive line off the transmission (front or rear) and the differential. Essentially making it a 2wd, and see if it will move. If it does, pull the diff and check it, if it doesn't, put that drive line back on and pull the other one. Repeat the check, if it moves, pull the diff, if it doesn't move after this check, it is likely the tranny. You may also want to check your brake linkage, make sure it isn't binding up as well. Start with the brake check first.

    Try to spin the spur gear by hand in both directions when the engine is shut down. You'll need to isolate where the problem is.
    How long have you owned it? New or used? Have you replaced the differentials? If so, one is upside down.

    The gear spin only to the right , when i try to spin it to the left it block.
    I bought it NEW , i used it 4 hours.
    I will try to open the differentials to see what's blocking. Can it be a gear broken ? I was doing drift into the grass before it broke.
    Thanks alot for your help

    It could be inside the transmission. Remove the center driveshafts from the transmission to determine if it is coming from the front, rear or tranny itself.

    You should be able to remove the shafts without removing more than skidplates. To get the differential out, you need to remove the bulkhead from the chassis. Screws on top holding the bulkhead to the chassis, you'll also need to disconnect the shocks from the rocker arms and the steering linkage from the servos on the front. You should usually be able to drop the whole assembly from the chassis, then pull the plate on the end of the assembly off to separate the bulkhead halves after disconnecting the drive shafts from the sides.
