take the motor out and spin the topshaft.do you hear clicking? if so it's in the tranny and probably your topshaft.if not then take your motor plate off and lay it on a flat surface. does it lay flat? if not,get a new motor plate and your problem should be solved. i would recommend the trinity motor plate if you need a new one as they are thicker and it takes A LOT to bend them. good luck!!

Does the drivetrain bind up when it clicks? Try putting one tire on the table, hold spur with one hand, then with other hand spin other tire back and forth lightly. If that's the noise you're hearing then it's ok and just the pin on the ball part of the dogbone hitting the outdrive slots. If your outdrives and dogbones are worn badly that might be what you are hearing as long that there is no dirt in any of your gears and they are not stripped out. Also can hold car off ground and compress both arms so that the dogbones are level, then spin drive train. If you don't hear the sound then that means you are OK also and just means there is a little slop in the universal pivot in the rear axles from wear and tear.

Team Losi 4 Life, you make me ashamed to be a Losi guy. You seem incapable to punctuate and/or spell. I suspect your car is built as well as your post.

WOW! Although his spelling does leave a little to be desired, I think you might have been a little harsh on the guy. After all he's just asking for help, it's not like he's on here starting trouble.
