i got my rex up on a lift and for some reason when i start the engine, the front right (passenger side) starts spinning. it doesn't spin all that fast and it can be stopped if i grab onto it, but it'll start spinning again when i let go. does anyone know the reason for this?:confused:

Yea. Normal. It is caused by friction from the mainshaft onto the layshaft. Even though the gears are not meshed in a forward moving position they are still spinning on each other and the friction is enough to move the wheels in the air but not on the ground. The same thing happens if you put an auto car into neutral on a lift.
