    Motor mesh 1/16 ford fiesta

    I have the brushed ford fiesta and am having motor mesh issues any suggestions? The motor keeps moving on me no matter how much I tighten the screw it always seems to get knocked out of place, and now I can't seem to get it back right.

    Is the motor mount stripped?
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I don't think so I get the screw pretty tight, I guess I just bash to hard lol. I just can't get it together now without it making noise I figure I ruined the gears so I ordered replacements.

    When you give it throttle it clicks/grinds I can't get the mesh right, thats why i ordered new spur and pinion there were shavings coming off the gears.

    That sounds more like a diff issue than a mesh issue between the spur and pinion.

    How are you setting mesh?
    Some debris in there is normal from my experience... how much are you getting?

    It wasn't a whole lot, just some shavings

    How do you know if its a diff?
