Default Please help me with this problem!

I have an ofna hyper 8, and after a lot of driving and bashing today the right wheel and the assembly behind it is completely locked up about halfway up. It's supposed to move up and down due to the shocks etc. but it's stuck in one position. The wheel won't move up or down. What could be causing this?

I think that's what it is. I removed the shock and its all locked up and crooked.

With the shaft pulled as far out as it will go you should be able to turn the shaft & see if it wobbls.If it dont the piston may have come off & got cockedd or shock body may have been dented locking the piston. How is your starter box going?
