salvageable transmission or is it shot?
 
hey guys i was running break in tank 2 out of 5 on the new engine i dropped into my t-maxx which is the trx3.3 racing engine and the transmission seized up and won't even turn even if i try to force it by hand. so does anyone know why that might happen in and is there a way i can salvage it and don't have to spend a dime on it? the truck is from 2003 and originally had the trx2.5 engine

If it broke and you need parts how will you fix it for free? Get a job. Depending on your age cut grass, clean up, etc. Problem solved. When you grow up you realize everything revolves around money. Good luck.

first check the lock pins that attach the driveshafts to the output shafts on the transmission. maybe obe backed out and locked against the chassis.

Even though laughing at someones problem is fun, I'm not like that. I was being serious and helpful if they chose to use the advice. BTW a rock can be jammed in the driveshaft area like the other guy said which happened to me before. Hope you figured it out and are back to enjoying your R/C. Ebay has good deals for new parts to help you out some more.

I had a rock jam up in the brake disk on my T-Maxx when it was running almost a decade ago, it brought the driveline to a dead halt.
