    Wheels wont spin anymore :(

    Today while playing around on flatland, my car just stopped in the field. So i gave it gas and nothing. Went up to the truck and the wheels wont spin

    Any ideas what happened? something in the transmission? sounds like its slipping.

    Are the wheels locked or is the engine just not making them spin? If the tires are spinning freely then it could be your clutch or slipper. If they aren't it could be your transmission, diff, or something as simple as a little rock in the spur gear. I've had that happen to me before, I tore the entire thing apart only to find that there was this stupid little pebble (not much larger than a grain of sand) stuck in one of the tranny gear teeth.

    I would start by checking the slipper clutch it may need to be tightened & it is possible you may have stripped the spur gear.

    yeah, the differential thing like buddha said... that, or it is the tranny.. either the spur, or inside... was it revving freely, and loud? if so, then it was the tranny, or spur... the slipper is another possability...

    As I discovered yesterday, it could also be that your clutch bell fell off and bound up the spur gear. Apparently it's just held on by an "e" clip and according to others here it "falls off all the time".

    On a side note, I said "I've had it happen several times", not "falls off all the time"...

    Sorry IndianJim, I should have specified that quote was from someone who PM'd me, not you. IndianJim did say that he had experienced this several times.

    Everything is intact and spur gear spins with the engine. The wheels spin freely at idle and WOT. Gunna take it apart tonight to see what it is. How is it possible for something to get inside there? Isnt it sealed?
