    Clicking driveshaft

    I was driving around on the snow on jumps and bumps and i noticed a small clicking from the front left driveshaft. I took off the wheel and the hex and nothing looked wrong. The noise isn't constant its only when I start to move and sometimes when stopping. What's going on?

    Those ring and pinion gears in the diffs are really solid. I would be very surprised if you damaged one. They are overbuilt for a Teton IMO. I would open it up and look for a rock or something else.

    I agree, mine are fine even running brushless and lipos. (the driveshaft's are not so great hah). Yours might have a busted tooth, I don't see how a rock could get in, they are sealed up pretty good.

    Is the universal joint on the driveshaft solid? Do the pins have any play in them? If you turn your wheels by hand you diff still turns also, id crack it open
