I have recently bought a Teton. It's a nice little truck, but I keep getting tiny pieces of sand in the pinion/spur area that always seem to get into the teeth and then cause a clicking sound while slowly destroying the spur and pinion teeth. It's easy to get it out of the teeth, but it gets tiring to continually do that. I drive in fairly sandy conditions as the off-road conditions around where I live just are sandy--nothing I can do about it.
Does anyone have a suggested mod about how to better seal that rear gearbox? I suspect it must be getting in through extra space where the center drive shaft enters through.
(FYI, to run my slash 4x4 in these same conditions I have to use the proline overtray and the aluminum tube drive shaft mod to keep enough sand out of the center area so I don't have to clean it out every 5 minutes. I was hoping something similar would be found for the Teton.)
