Name is Nino.
Got my very 1st Rc car back in 1985 Tamiya Hornet (was 5 at the time).
That worked well for many years until it didnt go any more approx 5 years later.
Havent had an RC anything since.
Xmas eve this year i got an RC Bike SR4. Was fun but missing something in the enjoyment side of things.
NYE day i got an E-Revo brushless... The fun began.
Was running fairly well on the stock batteries but wanted more kick so i got The LiPo's
WoW what a difference.
1st run with lipos only lasted 15mins cause it chewed up the spur gear from the center..
I have had a crash course in repairs.. that crap melted all over the clutch.. took a while but i scraped it all
out and put in a new gear.
Has this happened to you guys ?
What was the cause ?
Is it a regular problem ?
Should i swap it out for an alloy / aluminum part ?
