Could be a stripped spur tooth, or a bit of sand in the spur gear. I get sand in some of my spur gears almost daily.

Yeah. I get a clicking noise when I get a grain of sand in my spur gear. I always think the worst until I pull the cover off and see that it's just a grain of sand wedged between two spur gear teeth.

Your only option is tear it apart. You should be able to clearly see what is causing the noise. Could be anything in the gears, tranny, or differential.

All Slash spur gears wobble, it's not the spur, it's not the top shaft, it's the POS!!!! cast slipper clutch parts..nothing you can do about it!!!!!
