Default Problem on new 8T

I have a Losi 8T pro roller that is brand new. I havent even put servos on it yet. I was going to get all the stuff put on it and I noticed when the center diff is turning while on the truggy it feels like something is binding. I have looked while spinning the center diff and can not see anything such as the brake linkage rubbing. There is no wear or marks on the diff case. It is just not smooth in spots while turning. Again this thing is brand new. Has anyone seen this and if so what do I need to check? Could it be the internal diff gears even though its new? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help.

if you read through the losi manual near the back it tells you that you got to break in the differential's: while holding the chassis with ONLY the left side tires firmly on the ground.give the car about one eigth throttle, for 30 seconds. the right side tires should spin freely during this time. repeat this with ONLY the right side tires hel firmly to the ground, allowing the left tires to spin. repeat these steps at least two more times. hope that helps cheers
