As in the rear axle? Check the brakes.

Assuming it has disk brakes, they used a ball in a slot that rolled back and forth to activate and release brakes. They were bad to get rusty and stick in place, either in the released or locked position. Pull the brake cover on the side that is not rolling and see what happens. I have never worked on disk brakes for a Super M, but I believe the rotor has to be free to slide on the shaft, and if it sticks will cause the brake to not release.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I have had the brakes on the 230 lock a time or two, (same as Super M just smaller) and putting it in reverse would unlock them.
