    Video: What is the source of this grinding/clicking sound?

    Below is a short video of the grinding/clicking sound when turning the wheels (or when running the X-Maxx). I have inspected both the front and rear differentials and everything is in working order. Also, as you can see, I have also removed the spur gear assembly, which is also in operating order. Any ideas on the source of this sound?

    The noise started after a run last night. The noise is definitely new and something I've yet to hear.

    the low rumbling noise? maybe a bowed center driveshaft. been doing big jumps or hit anything hard? doesnt sound that bad in the video, maybe just grit or a rock got in in the wrong spot.
