Default Help! Spur gear/ Brakes!?

Yes hi, i have a team kyosho DBX and i unfortuantly stripped the spur gear so i went out and bought a new one and instalelled. After i installed i went out took it for a spin and i realized that it was like the brakes were constantly on and even if i would turn it off and try to roll it i couldnt cuz the tires wouldnt spin. So i unscrewed the engine so the pinion gear didnt touch the spur gear and it did the same thing. What is up with this?!

I dont own one of these cars. At first I was thinking that it must have been your meshing is too close. but since you removed the engine then that cant be it.

Check around the drivetrain especially in the center diff area. something might have melted or a rock might have gotten lodged in somewhere when you stripped the gear. or possibly you reassembled something improperly.
