Default Help one of my wheels isnt spinning

I mounted my rc and used the throttle and I noticed the front right wheel is not spinning but the other 3 are. Its an and off but 1/10 of the time it will spin for 1 or 2 secs then stop. I dont know how to say it but I noticed the axl between the suspension is not turning causing the wheel to spin while the one on the left is spinning at full speed when I throttle. Its like there is no contact. How can I repair it?

Pull it apart and look for broken or missing parts. Always better to do your own work.

Could be a bad/seized bearing. Can you turn that wheel by hand?

It would help if we knew what car it is.

It could be:
Wheel nut done up too tight
Pin coming out of driveshaft joint at either end
Pin missing from driveshaft joint
Seized bearing dragging on axle.
Loose diff outdrive
Too much droop causing driveshaft to bind when lifted up

Just take it apart and look for damaged/broken parts
