Default Yokomo Drift Spec

So yesterday I took in a Yokomo drift car on trade. It has an enroute 6.5t brushless motor and from what I read, a matching esc. The rear diff was disassembled due to plastic piece that the outdrive attached too was broke off. So I got the new piece all put back in and was running it. It is FAST! I was sliding around when the crappy 27mhz lost signal and it slammed into a wall head on. Direct impact was on front bumper. Problem is now the car is louder. Grinding sound almost. I took the pinion off the motor and the wheels spun freely. Put pinion back on and the grinding was back. So im pretty sure the culprit is in the motor. Just clueless as to where to start. Anybody got any feedback? Much appreciated.

I believe that your chassis is the shaft drive MR-4TC SD version and if you've hit a wall head-on you have likely tweeked the chassis. The gears in the front or rear differential may have shifted or even been damaged. A 6.5 brushless motor is overkill in a drift car and drifting isn't about speed.

Im not an expert in the field but to answer your question, like a dream! lol. I took it in on trade from a guy that had over 60,000 yen into. So over $600 US. I changed out pinion and spur gears and now alls well. So smooth. Changed from the abs wheels to a more plyable street tire and it drifts more naturally now. Plenty of power with the brushless.
