T3 Rear End Clicking....Stumped?

Hey Guys
My RC10T3 is clicking in the rear end, I'm completely stumped.
I tried:
Lubing the dogbones
checking for rocks in the spur/pinion
checked all gear mesh


BTW I'm running a Trinty Retro Series 12x2 if that makes any difference to an answer... LMK, Im completely stumped on this one

Thanks,
Jeff

Things to check....

Make sure your motor screws aren't too long and hitting the armature.


Also check to make sure the axle pins aren't hitting the spur gear cover.

Thanks
Jon

I have had that problem before. And what was causing my problem was the inside spokes on the rim were hitting the rear hub carrier. This happened most often with pro-line velocity rims. If that ends up being your problem make sure your wheels are not screwed on too tight and that the roll pins in your axles are not bent. Hope this helps.

It can also sometimes be a too tight diff,which causes the cvds/dogbones to bind in the outdrive and then pop free.

RMD17 hit it right on the head,what i used to do was take a dremel and grind a little bit of material off the spokes,wont hurt the wheels at all.

ALSO CHECK THE GEARS IN THE GEARBOX. IT IS NOT 100% COMPLETELY SEALED. I HAVE HAD THAT PROBLEM ON MY LOSI CARS AND FOUND IT TO BE THE GEARS IN SIDE.

Check the pinion and spur for missing teeth.
