Default Savage 21 Front Wheel Drive only

with the savage off the ground all tires spin, when you put it on surface fronts spin only and no back, I checked spider gears and hub pins I checked transmission and all gears are intact any ideas? also has plenty of drive when in reverse all wheels spin This thing starting to get on my nerves even though Hyper 8 Port helps.

Did you check the hubs on the rims? They may have stripped out in the rear

If they were striped than wouldn't you think it would do it in reverse also?

Its kinda like when you strip a screw...It might go on but it won't come back off.Did you check the center rear shaft and outdrive?

drop it on pavement and gun it holding it back..... ok.. now what spins and what doesnt.

we know the front is good so we ignore that... we know the back is toast so we look there...

the wheels are stopped to we look to the DBs are the dog bones spinning? if they are then its a wheel hub or axel.

if they are not then look at the outdrive... is that spinning? etc etc..

trace it back till you find out were the spinny bits stop.. then you problem should be right there.
