it could be either the diff's pinion gear or ring gear. you will have to open up the diff and look for the damage.

I have a Volcano EXP Pro, and the stock battery lasts maybe 7-8 minutes.  Is this normal?  I understand from this forum most of the time you need to update to LIPO' s being the best.  I have looked at so many batteries and chargers my eyes are spinning.  7.4 5000mah batteries from $20 - $200.  Charger/balancer from $30 - $300.  What do I buy???  Can anyone one please help???  I don;t want to spend a fortune just have something that works good.

Do I need to change ESC, and do I need to put some kind of shutoff thing because of the LIPO?  As ya'll can tell, I'm new to this stuff.

Could anyone tell me the tire and wheel size for a volcano S30? Iwasn't sure if it was 2.2 or 2.8 tires. Any help would be appreciated.

Thats pretty surprising, the sh engines are very good. A good replacement and powerful also is the os .18 cvrx, its pretty much a direct fit and a very good engine. You should use the engine replacement program and get another sh.18 engine, they are very good engines, it will be a much cheaper route to go.

anyone have any issues with the on/off switch on the reciver not working? the plastic around mine broke and now it wont turn on, though it was because of weak batteries but put a fresh set in and still nothing, or is it possible that the receiver is bad? i have no response from either the throttle or steering, and cant even hear the hum when you first turn it on

ok so i think the receiver on/off switch broke on my volcano s30 and the plastic under the switch is broke. I get no response from either the throttle or steering. I thought first it was dead batteries because i left it on, but even with a fresh get i get nothing. anyone else has a similar issue,

is the power switch a part of he battery tray cover or separate

on my volcano s30 the plastic piece broke i just put it back on and put a piece of black tape on it haven't had a problem. Check the wires going to the switch if they are broke you can try to solder them with a pen point soldering iron. The switch is separte
