    Front wheel drive rustler 4x4

    hey guys, yesterday I was driving my rustler 4x4 vxl around and it just switched to front wheel drive only. There were no bad sounds and the truck seemed to be running fine.

    Sounds like you broke something in the rear, open it up and see what's broken...

    Could have lost a rear slider pin. Although, that's usually pretty obvious as the inside cup of the axle falls off the diff and flops around. Could have also sheared a wheel hex pin or something inside the diff.
    Expert rigging at it's best!

    I think it is what olds97 lss said. This happened to me also. If it was in the diff, I would think that it would make noise... also check to make sure that you slipper clutch is not just loose...

    You need to take it apart. Sometimes the wheel hex will get round. That will also cause you to only have a front wheel drive truck.
