Default Help!!!

I'm a newbie with my 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter. We have a Senton 6s. All was working well. Now the front wheels isn't as fast as the rear. It basically barely spin when we accelerate. help please. Kids are home school for 3 weeks due to COVID-19 and we need activities.

We actually have 7 trucks but they're all broken with various parts. This is the last survivor hopefully a quick fix.

thanks
DBE

seedygreenute is referring to the Senton's differentials (diffs) not being up to par. Most likely the center diff is empty as it's the center differential that divides up the power supplied to the front and rear differentials.

Sounds like now is a great time to dig into doing some maintenance on your RCs. I don't know what other RCs you have, popperdbe, but Arrma has pretty darn good exploded views to help take apart/put back together their RCs.

When you are in there working on the Senton's diffs, have a look at the set screw for the gearbox input cup. Make sure it's tight.
