Which shaft is it that won't spin. The one going to the differential or the ones coming out?

i had that same problem the oter day. I had to make sure the drive cup was line up correctly on the shaft coming from the tranny. i tightened it incorrectly on the round part of the shaft and it would slip. once we put it on the flat part no more problems.

i would say it is bad landings, not as big as air as my tmaxx, but it might be big air for these about 5' landing vertical on 1 tire

39 and i doubt you will find anything that will fit, i tried from hpi, traxxas, tamiya, kyosho. Its the same pitch as the hpi but no gears will mount like it.
