Default volcano sv no go

I just purchased a Volcano SV and have broken it in well. Recently I was out at the bmx track and took a small jump and now nothing works in the drive train. If you have it off the ground, the front tires will go forward and the back ones you can spin backwards without and problem. I think this is not good. What should I be looking for and how to get it running again.

first, check to make sure all your dogbones are still in place. One going from the front diff to both front tires, one going from the front diff to the center, one going form the center to the rear, and one going from the rear diff to both rear tires.

Check the drive cups. There are cups the center dog bones sit in that are held in place by screws. It's possible that screw backed out. If it did, retighten it and use blue loc-tite on the threads of the screw to prevent it from happening again. You can buy loc-tite at any store that sells automotive parts. including the big discount chain stores.

also make sure nothing is stuck in your drive train like a rock or something
