Default need help with my tmaxx

i am relativly new to nitro trucks and have just brought a 2nd hand tmaxx 3.3. i have managed to get it all running and tuned ok, at least i think i have, but have come across a problem. the rear wheels dont seem to be getting any drive! when i throttle the front tyres spin and the back ones done seem to be doing anything?!

any help would be great!

Cheers

its either you are missing a screw that goes through the axle or the rear diff is blown. there wouldnt be anything wrong with the tranny since the front wheels are spinning. more and likely since the tmaxx puts alot of power to the rear end i would have to say it is a diff problem. try spinning one wheel with you hand ans see if the other turns the oposite way if is does move at all the diff is gone.

hey yer i was gonna say, didt think it would be the diff as the front tyres are spinning, a hell of a lot!! just didnt want to have to undo parts that dont need touching then get into trouble trying to reassemble it all back together!! i will have a look tho, many thanks
