    Total noob here with a Stampede vxl 4x4 noise question.

    Like I said. I am a complete newbie to rc cars besides some crappy ones I had when I was a kid. I bought a Stampede vxl 4x4 about a week ago and have ran it about 5times. A rear drive shaft broke instantly so I unhooked the front two drive trains, pulled out the part that connects to the shaft and zip tied the other part down so they wouldn't be flopping around, and hooked back up my broke rear shaft with the pieces. Anyway, my new pieces came in today and I got them all hooked back up and before I run it again I want to ask about this clicking noise when my truck rolls. I've never been around these type of rc's so I don't know if this is a normal noise or not. Here's a video. Hope you guys can help me out and I apologize if this is stupid lol.

    Does it sound smooth when you roll it faster? It seems like the normal 4 pole motor turning click. Id be worried if my p4de WASNT making odd noises.

    Seems normal to me as well. As long as there's same consistent resistance as you push on it and doesn't bind, or get hard to push, your good.
    Just need one more rc, then Ill be done...
