    Have you lifted it?
    It sounds like something is binding, maybe the drive shafts?

    Are the tiny bolts that attach them to the main gear tight?
    Also make sure your bearings are seated on them correctly.

    Love the video memphis. It helped me some. But i still havent decided what route im going to take for my first crawler..lol. I havent assembled a kit in years so taking the wraith apart might not work for me i might not get it back together..lol. Ive thrown the ridgecrest into the mix to. I think i would like to do more crawling then the honcho would allow. It looks a bit top heavy. Your bronco body looks sick btw. I love early broncos. Ahh choices choices

    They dont its all on how you wire dual motors he could use dual 19t motors if wired the other way theres two ways on you need high turns cuz the esc sees half the turns the motors are and one it thinks its one motor and sees there total turns but iv seen a guy use two 20t axial motors on the ae2 it was fast for a trail truck and had good pulling crawling power

    Help, thanks!

    I am having a problem with my scx10 that I was hoping someone could help me with, my motor squeals and has trouble turning. I took everything apart and the motor is fine but I discovered that my spur is not turning. This might be a problem with the gear mesh but I cannot turn the spur at all with my hands. I do not know why it won't turn and after dropping some serious money into it, I wish someone could provide me with some much needed info.

    Will the trans turn with the drive shaft off?
    Does the trans move with the motor off of it?

    Oh and welcome to the forums!

    Thanks, well the trans earlier would not turn when off the motor but I guess that's because the driveshafts were connected. I have now disassembled everything and am almost finished reassembling and it seems to be working, I will see if the motor turns it and keep you updated in case of future problems.

    When you manually push the truck with everything hooked up does the trans turn?
    Is your spur gear tight against the slipper pad?

    Might be a dumb question but will the locking doffs allow me to roll it any way?

    I think my level 3 rc lift kit caused my driveshafts to bind

    The locking diffs purpose is to make both wheels on the same axle to pull equally.

    The driveshaft binding is a common problem when lifts are added.
    A fix is to change the length of your suspension links to turn the axles input shaft on a better angle to the transmissions output shaft.
    They can be purchased ( The links ) or you can make your own to fit your needs.

    Oh and on a side note, there are no dumb questions!
