Cool problem with my savage x 4.6

I posted in a different forum to but think this one may be the right one. I have a new (just broken in) Savage x 4.6. I already replaced the throttle servo because it went out on me. Now I have a new problem. I had noticed a slow loss in power over about a 5 minute period. When the issue continued i decided to pick up the truck and press the throttle a little. Only the front tires are spinning. I have no power going to the rear. Any ideas on what's causing it? If you have any questions let me know. I've barely used 1/3 gallon of nitro so far. Just hoping i can get it up and running.

id guess one of the screw pins that attaches the rear driveshaft has fallen out. flip the truck over, hold the front tires and spin the rears, if the center rear driveshaft turns its the pin at the transmission side, if the rear center shaft doesnt turn its the pin at the back.

Thanks a bunch. I knew it had to be something small because the truck is virtually new! It was the pin at the back. Now, do you know if the screw pin comes in the "spare parts" bag of screws and pins or do I have to purchase it separately? Again, I appreciate the help!

And use good thread lock after you have replaced it.
