    Make sure its not to tight.. I always stick a piece of paper between the spur and pinion.

    Hope you have a 90T spur and maybe a heat sink with that ,or there may be more smoke only this time from the motor.
    I run 19/86 on 2S Lipo, but that's with a modified heat sink that I made that drops the temp quite a bit.
