Default Revo 4 Wheel Drive Problem

My Revo will not engage into 4 wheel drive. Whenever youroll it with the front wheels off the ground they turn fine. However, when you drive it, theywill not engage. One of my friends said it could bea set screw. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

you got to check the pins or screws in the drive shafts they come loose some times, try puttin some heat shrink around them and heat them up, then they cant fall out, turn the truck upside down and spin the wheels the pins are at either ends of the trans

When you nail the gas, wich wheels spin, the front, or the back?

Edit:

Sounds like you broke the front center shaft

The back wheels spin when you give it throttle. The drive sshaft is there and turns fine and everything.

Sounds like you stripped a gear in the front diff. Last time I stripped one I didn't even hear grinding but thats what is was.
