There is a bearing at the back middle of drum, and the socket in which it rides. (made of plastic].
Often when the exhaust is clogged or not venting properly it causes the plastic to melt wearing out the bearing.
There is a bearing kit with the complete beareing and socket but you will need to basically take the whole machine apart to rteplace these parts.

How fast does it go

This Axial SCX10 chassis is an off road rig. A Ready To Run one out of the box probably goes as fast you can run. They weren't designed for speed but, if you read up on gearing, Lipo batteries and motors for Axial RC's you'll find you get a lot of speed out of it. BUT BE WARNED! You'll start breaking parts if not careful! The parts were designed for the off road trailing, not racing. There are expensive upgrades that will let you get more speed and power and withstand some of the abuse that goes with it. You can't a better rig to upgrade than an AXIAL rig.

I bought my 2yr old son a daewoo vcr combo tv model # dvq13h1fc and it didn't come with a remote. It does not have a menu button on the tv, so im trying to figure out how I can hook his dvd player up so he...

Many combo tvs are simplified so as to play its own dvds or in this case its own vhs tapes. Never purchase a combo unit unless you wish it to be stand alone. Always look for how many plug-ins are on a tv before you purchase it. The number of plug-ins is a sure way of telling the quality of the tv or any other device. If all you have is a co-axial input then use that to send a signal from a dvd player that has a co-axial in and a co-axial out. Turn the tv to channel 3 to play through a dvd player. Use the remote control from the cable company to change channels on their box and change the volume manually unless you can find a setting for that to change the internal volume in the cable box.

Front drive shaft turns but front axial wont roate

Unfortunately, It sounds to be an internal planetary gear problem, which will probably require rebuilding or outright replacing

Abs light flashing

ABS failures are numerous. Depending on the source of the problem can be the abs connector near each wheel axial or a broken stator (a small disk which is part of the sensors at each axial) or its pickup sensor.

Other problems that are associated to this are uneven braking presser due to a frozen caliper or damaged/worn brake pads, shoes on drum brakes.

Some problems are due to problems with electronic assisted brake components. (See your local dealer about recalls, etc.)

'94 Camaro-rear axle

This amount of play would not be excessive. I don't think you can remove sll the play in a GM rearend. Do you have a posi-track rearend? That could be acting up and creating your problem.
