Unhappy HELP! Wheels not rotating easily!

Ive had my hsp warhead for about 3 months, and i decided to take it into loose dirt to do some drifting. It was all fine, and used up about 3 quarters of the tank until the car would need more and more throttle to move. The engine cut off, and i went to start it again on my starting block. It turned on, but the wheels would need at least 1/4 to 1/3 throttle to turn the wheels. I stopped the engine, and tried turning the wheels individually, which was fine. But when i turn the wheels simultaneuosly, it feels like there is grinding somewhere along the axles or somewhere in the centre. Could a rock have gotten into the gearbox?? I really need this to be fixed, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for thr long post!

Start at the hubs with the bearings, check that a rock isn't jammed in the drive lines, then open the gearbox and check bearings and gears.
don't take it too serious, they are toys....
