    The pinion gear slid off easily. Didn't see any residue either on the shaft, on the set pin, or on the pinion itself.

    It's not the wrench, unless I stripped two of them. I used the Traxxas supplied wrench when I heard the snap, and chased down my other wrench and it turns within the head freely.

    Short grass (Approx 1" or less): Fine
    Anything over 3" and it'll work very hard and get bogged down repeatedly.
