    Traxxas rustler confusing problem

    Hello, my traxxas rustler's rear right axle is spinning significantly slower than the left it is also making a strange clicking noise. I have tried adjusting the axle bolt tightness which did not help.
    I am relativley new to R.C. cars and have no clue what is happening please help.

    Clicking is usually a bad sign... Sounds like you chewed up some gears, either in the tranny or the differential. Youíll probably need to disassemble it to get to the bottom of it.

    If youíre new to this, itís a great opportunity to get familiar with the inner workings.

    Although I don't have a Rustler (I have a 2wd Slash), I think it might be a problem with the differential. Try opening the gearbox, and take a look to see if something is wrong there.

    If you are not sure of how to take it apart, try taking a look at the Rustler transmission exploded view

    sounds like the symptoms I had recently when I exploded a diff under 3s power.

    get it apart, inspect the case, you may only need the gears, a little cheaper than the whole thing.

    Sounds like a planatery gear, I had the same problem a long time ago. The planatery gear houses the differential. It is the largest gear in the gearbox
