    Unhappy I do not know what is wrong with my e-revo

    I was drifting on gravel. after that I was driving down the road and I heard a strange sound I think came from the back of the car, I do not know. it sounds kind of a small stone that is in it somewhere . it just gets worse and worse. now I can barely drive it. I think that the stone has broken something in the car. the car has lost a lot of power after that.

    You will need to take a close look and find the issue. It sounds like a rock or something may be or have been in the drive line somewhere - could be in the drive or wheel shafts. Only way to find out is to do a real close inspection...

    If you are unable to do this yourself, perhaps you can take it to your local hobby shop and have them inspect it for you, or perhaps a friend who knows RC cars too?

    If its getting worse and worse it might be the diff going. Also let us know your general location, someone on the forum might be nearby that can lend a hand.

    ^^^ what he said ^^^

    Sounds to me like your rear diff maybe going down the drain...

    Inspect your car through and through but if you can't find a rock or a pebble that would make this sound it's more likely to be your rear diff.

    it could be rocks in the center drive shaft, a bad bearing, broken diff, we could be guessing all day until you start taking it apart for an inspection and provide more info of what you have found.

    I'd bet my house that your rear diff is broken.

    219 second pic, take the center skid off and looking for rocks, I'm thinking rocks on the front center drive shaft.
    there was a thread I can't find, that made a cover to keep rocks out, ksb might have it bookmarked??
