Default RC10T4.1 Rough CVD

Hello everybody!

Much like a lot of other folks around here, I am getting back into all things RC, after an 18 year hiatus. I decided build an RC10T4.1 Factory Team kit.

So, now that it's completely assembled, there seems to be a problem with the CVD going to the right rear wheel. While lifting the back of the truck off the ground, as I spin the left wheel, the right CVD gets to a point in it's rotation, where it actually has to compress the suspension to be able to complete 1 rotation. If I give it some power, the right suspension goes up and down as the wheel completes it's rotations. If I compress the suspension slightly, it spins just fine, and the sag on the rear is enough to smooth it out when I set it down. But I don't think it should be like this.

Not normal, I would look into why it does it on the right not on the left side also, figure that out and you'll have your answer. Does the CVA hit anything? Does the CVA bind when you rotate it by hand, out of the truck?

Binding somewhere, maybe not shimmed right? Don't know ballcup location, possibly rubbing inside wheel.
