Default Traxxas Slash tranny issue

Tried searching the forum, but kept getting a server not available page...not sure whats up there.

I need a new differential for my 2wd Slash. Can't seem to find one, other than if I buy a whole tranny on Ebay. Anyone know of a place that sells a new center diff?

best advice I can give is always check your manual, get the part number of what's broken, and type it into (any online hobby shop/ebay).
For example, the diff in a 2wd slash (don't need to say center, there is only one diff) is 2388X, typing this into towerhobbies yields this:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...388x&search=Go

Of course you can save money by figuring out what is exactly wrong with it.

2 years and I've never had a problem with the diff, even in snow. I sheared off a Castle motor shaft before I damaged the diff.

You can buy the whole diff from any online retailer or your LHS.

Brushless ready transmission indeed

that might do the trick. the outside gear is not stripped, the noise is coming from inside

UPDATE

I put the new internals in the diff. the old planetary gears were completely stripped. yuck. what a mess.

Got it cleaned out, put it all back together, and put it back in the truck...all better now, thanks guys!
