I agree that its probably the gearbox, same thing has happened to my racecar a few times under similar circumstances. It doesn't seem to take much.

I basically hoped over a curb on the drivers side and went over two big rocks but like I said no visual damage.

Send a message via Yahoo to cxrxaxz
I can tell you what it is. It is your steering stabilizer. Its bent. I did this a couple times. buy another and replace it and its all good.
