Could be the differential. If not that I would just check to make sure all the screws are snug.

its best to open up the gearbox and check the diff and input shaft, then the laft and right drive shafts and bearings to locate the problem, so see if it still makes the sound without the cvds/dogbones installed so u can be sure where its from

You race @ Hobbyworld? Gotta meet up sometime

Check the CVD's and open the diff casing

Default noises..

also check the drive cups for the shaft .. if there worn thell do just that and make noise .. other than that if your running the losi front hub's they might be binding at full lock causing the cvd's to bind and could result in replacing the wheel bearings .. my 2 cents.. good luck !! one more thing replace the ball cups if worn too ..

It's probably a bad bearing.

Check the gears

Where in SJ do you live...The chances of me being there this Saturday are slim (no cash) but I'll be at Sheldon's on the 10th

I shot you a few e-mails
