    i just cleaned my motor and the first run after doing that it ran fine. now when i take it out when i go full throttle or close to full throttle my motor makes a grinding sound. as it picks up speed it goes away. also my ESC is running warmer than usual. the motor is fairly new, a couple weeks. any1 know whats going on?and possibly how to fix it. Thanks...

    how would i go about doing that. i have taken apart my tranny case to see if any gears were stripped but thats not looking for any prblems on the diff. When u say re-build it how would i do that. Thanks for the tip.

    Have you check the gear mesh? If it is too loose it can make that grinding noise. Look at the spur gear to see if it is chewed up.

    ya i checked the gear mesh on the spur to pinion with a piece of paper and it was fine. Im really leaning on the fact that my diff. is screwed up. i think im gonna end up replacing it. its not too expensive anyway.
