    Same thing happened to me. Rebuild it. There are 2 bearings that hold the rotor in place, one of those bearings is likely shot.

    I disagree that you might need a new rotor - the rotor is a huge...

    I just installed my big bores this week. I used the recommended settings in the instructions for how to set them up for "bashing". I used 47wt shock oil (no clue what the oil that comes with it...

    Duratrax stand is great, unless you add the T-bone racing skid plate (that covers the steering servo), then the truck doesn't sit flat sadly.

    I should probably clarify, I didn't notice motor temp problems until I upgraded to pro-line trencher tires (more grip). On the stock tires, on 2S, motor temps were fine.

    Should be fine with trenchers unless you've lowered the body - then it will rub. I had that problem, but you just hack out some more of the wheel wells.

    Drywall tape and shoe goo is indeed the way to go. If you're getting large cracks, I recommend gorilla glue in these local areas. Expands as it dries and is really tough.

    I'm in this same boat - had to go to a 9t pinion after buying trenchers (2s, stock motor/esc) to keep temps down. You can notice the top end speed change (will be slower), but torque-wise I didn't...

    I also had heat issues running stock motor/esc and 11t pinion. I geared down to a 9t pinion to be safe. Temps don't get above 160F now and I run the thing hard.

    I hope you're running this setup in very short bursts and monitoring your temps. I saw 195F with 2s lipo, 11t pinion, and proline trenchers (on dirt surface).

    Yup, check the big bearing inside the hub carrier. They like to shred. Also the hub carrier plastic could be withering away (this happened to me just last week)

    I agree here. I haven't upgraded the shafts yet, but upgrading to aluminum shock caps and going to 40wt shock oil has been perfect for some hard bashing

    I agree with this. Stuff will break as you increase the power, but it's so easy to figure out what part to buy to fix it and/or upgrade it.
