Clicking noises? does it do it when driving? only when it turns? when you turn the wheels when you arent driving? It could be a diff gear chipped a tooth, the spur gears on the tranny chipped a tooth, a dog bone popping. Give me some more info and we will get to the bottom of it.

i had the same problem, if it only clicks when you steer and the steering is kind of jolty, then you have stripped a steering servo gear. you can either buy a new servo or look for replacement gears for your servo which can be hard to come by. it has striped because you are turning it too hard and too often, and if you are working it that hard (as was i) you may want to get a metal gear servo to prevent this in the future (not that i did). hope this helps,

What about all of the other things I asked you about? I am thinking it may be a diff gear that is chipped. It should make noise if you just lift it up and turn the wheels by hand if one of the diff gears is chipped.

Also what have you done that you have gone through that many servo's?

Where does the noise come from? front, back or middle? does it come from one side or is it centered between the wheels?

Check your diff cups for a broken cup. If you don not have a broken cup, take the diff out and check your ring and pinion gears for chipped worn or broken teeth. I would just about bet its a diff cup though. These are are an item that fails under normal use due to the lenth of the dog bones. You can switch to CVD's and it should reduce the number of broken diff cups.

Then its either your diff or a missing tooth on your spur. I was driving on ice in my truck and killed the first gear spur when my clutch bell came loose.

If its not degrading performance though, I wouldn't worry about it to much.

You can get a new spur on www.ehobbies.com they are like five bucks. I would recommend buying an extra one to keep on hand. I would also recommend a few extra diff cups, an extra clutch, and the screw set. That way you have some spares on hand in case you break something.

go to www.toyhaus.com and use their interactive parts finder. I still recommend ordering from www.ehobbies.com though. Toyhaus charges a lot for shipping and they charge more for parts. Good luck with the swap and let us know if you have more questions.
