    It may very well be braking.
    If the neutral position is off, the ESC may think it's in braking position.
    Best to recalibrate the radio to the ESC if there is ever any doubt!

    I see what you mean now. I have encountered those thicker ones from time to time on parts trucks.
    Maybe they are the Tamiyas...

    Where'd you find the 0.8mm's and 0.5mm's? That's a gem of info I'd really like, and many can use!

    Its a stock Slash HCG "High Center of Gravity" or original chassis if you prefer, and it's an XL-5.
    Your XL-5 ESC should be 2S capable and transmission should be brushless ready(steel gears).

    It's most likely the idler gear inside the gearbox. Possibly the top shaft or differential but idlers tend to go.
    Your model (especially the other one) may have a plastic idler gear. Be sure to...

    Grey for front, black for rear.
    Using the thicker grey ones, will take away that slop and allow the wheel nut to tighten properly.
