my brother in law has a hyper 8 pro buggy and can hold the center diff spur gear with his fingers and still push the car without the gear moving...any reason why? if i hold mine on my xray it locks the wheels up immediatley..

are the diffs stripped? is the spur attached to the center diff? missing a driveshaft? those are the only things i can think of right off the top of my head.

If both center driveshafts turn while holding the center diff, the problem is in the center diff.
If one of the center driveshafts isn't turning, the problem is related to the driveshaft that isn't turning or the diff/axles/hubs/wheels on that end.
