    Unlocked Tranny

    The exact opposite of a locked diff would be a unlocked diff. I'm not sure but would that mean that if you were to spin one wheel without touching the other, the untouched wheel would stay completely still?

    with a locked diff if u spin 1 tire the other will spin the same way and with an unlocked diff if u spin 1 tire the other tire will spin in the opposite direction.

    Ok, so what exactly does it mean if when I spin one wheel and the other does nothing?

    that has a special meaning. it means "something is wrong".

    lol jk, probably it is just spinning the spur gear.

    means you have a diff. and could be binding on that side

    It's called an "open differential".

    Never Mind guys it was just a bit worried me a bit because I just repacked my tranny and diff and before when you would spin one wheel the other would spin the other way but no if you're looking at the Slash from behind if you spin the left wheel the right wheel spins but if you spin the right wheel the left doesn't.
