    Bought my son a Traxxas Slash for his birthday and after dogging it for a couple days it's already needing maintenance. Sounds like the gears have been stripped causing a high pitched squeal when trying to accelerate.

    I'd post a video but can't from my phone app.

    A high pitch squeal could be the slipper clutch, or it could be a gear. Does it move at all? Is it 4x4 or 2wd, brushed or brushless?
