    1/16 revo jeep

    This is my 1/16 revo done up to run with the 1/16 summit...It has a nylint jeep body with 4x4 slash bfg tires...I run a traxxas 3000 7 cell nimh and a venom 5000 7 cell... This thing does scream in the snow...Will be getting a 1/16 summit to bash against it...

    maybe its a differential problem. ive gone through three of those from bad impacts taking the start of the teeth off, or just knocking one off maybe? then it just starts getting worse. since the rear (or front) wheels will push (or pull) it almost no matter what, even with a center diff with thick oil in it! lol
