    Angry Help! Spur gear or worse ?

    Hi
    Just joined 😁 bought me a e revo 2.0 last week used. After 1 min I flipped the truck and decided to use the self righting feature. Bad move. It Tried to self right one time and then nothing happened except a Weird noise. I suspect the spur gear?
    Does anyone have any input?
    Thanks 😊

    Easy to check if that is the case just by popping off the spur gear cover and taking a look inside. My bet is you toasted a differential. I strongly advise everyone I know...NOT to use self righting...it is a cool "feature" but almost everyone I know that has used it roasts something. Id rather take the walk of shame to flip my truck vs spend 2 plus hours working on it and still have to do the walk of shame..lol.
