    Exclamation Problem with Traxxas Rustler Electric


    I have this traxxas rustler (xl-5, titan 12t motor) since christmas. A few days ago, while using it, it stopped working, and doing whats in the video.
    What happened? what can i do to fix it?
    In the video you can see that wheels dont work, i pull the trigger and the motor seems to work in a bad way, maybe its the transmission, what do you think?

    I would say that you striped the spur gear, the pinion gear, or the pinion gear came loose on the motor shaft.

    Remove the gear cover (remove the right rear wheel first) and see if everything is ok there (check the items westoakmech mentioned).

    It could be since it is a brushed motor, that the brushes came up. That happened to mine when i pulled the trigger everything would spin but no the wheels, or it wouldn't even spin. I brought it in and Hobby-town told me how to fix it. That would be odd though cause it is relatively new, if you got it for Christmas.
