    Savage xs wont move??

    Irecently started having this problem my savage xs wont move when Ihit the throttle makes like a grinding noise as its trying to move but it just stutters. Now when Idid pick it up and held it in the air it seemed to work fine. Bad thing is Ioriginally thought it was the motor giving out and bought a new one and it didnt change a thing. Ichecked the pinion gear and transmission gears so all is good there and Iwas in the diffs not more than a week ago and everything was fine. Think it might have something to do with the esc? Idont know any opinions would be appreciated.

    Sounds like you have stripped gears in the diffs.

    Actually Ijust ripped apart the rear diff and discovered on of the bearings that sit on both sides of the diff on the shafts has totally exploded think this could be the problem forgive me if some of these problems are a little annoying because Ido not have a lot of experience with the diffs themselves.

    Found the exploded bearing left that diff out turned the car on with the front diff still in and it was still having the same problem. So I took the front diff out and ripped them both apart and all the gears inside are in perfect shape. But with both diffs out the motor spins freely without any hesitation This is really starting to get old...lol I cannot figure out for the life of me whats going on with this thing.

    sounds like either your slipper nut loosed up or the transmission has a stripped gear. did you check the slipper clutch nut?

    All the gears in the tranny are fine actually, one of the slipper pads looks really worn down so Im changing that to see if it helps. My slipper nut seemed to be tight when Itook it apart so I dont know see if the pad fixes it.
