    Yes, stock motor. Pins are in the "G" slots for 18/50.
    There is no play between spur and pinion. Actually the mesh is pretty tight, tighter than that I would set it at manually.

    You mean a washer between the spring and the nut? Because the bearing isn't next to nut, but the spring is?

    Gear mesh pin system - or not?

    Are there X-Maxx drivers out there not using the gear mesh pin system?
    So basically just a manual set mesh without the pins, and then just tightening down the 4 motor mount bolts underneath?

    Also, are you using the spring and nut for your slipper, or have you also replaced the spring with something solid?

    Bearings are all good.

    Spur gear meltdown - again

    X-Maxx with HW EZRUN MAX6 ESC, 18/50 gearing (Traxxas pinion and spur).
    Firts run lasted for 10 minutes, before the screeching sound came in with a sudden loss of all power. Teeth on the spur gear...

    With shielded being the metal one, and sealed the rubber sealed, correct?
    I was just concerned that the heat from the slipper would kind of melt the rubber seals of the bearing if I'd use that one...

    Alright, sir, sounds like a plan to me!
    Will give it a go (and it saves me buying that specific bearing).
  10. Slipper clutch bearing replacement advice needed

    Hello there,

    Took the slipper apart for a checkup, and the inner bearing (TRX 4611 - part "B" in the picture) coming from inside part "A" in the picture feels a little gritty.

    I would like to...

    18/54 as all-around gearing?

    Running a stock X-Maxx with 18/54 as all-around gearing on 6S, is that a good idea?

    Of course I will be monitoring temps, but I am asking for opinions since...

    Is it in the Traxxas Link app (channel setup - throttle) and then pressing the "reset" button?

    Funny that you're asking.
    Didn't know that the self righting didn't work in 70/30, but since I'm used to 70/30 on all my other trucks, I wanted to put the X-Maxx in 70/30 as well. Funniest thing:...

    About the rudder with dual water pickup: what are the sources to buy that one for an exact Spartan drop-in? I assume Traxxas themselves don't make that?

    If you'd buy a brand new 2013 Spartan (5707L), can you safely expect the electronics (read: the VXL-6S and motor) to be good and reliable?

    Both the EVX-2 ESC and the Titan 775 are rated for up to 4S.
    2 x 3S (in series) = 6S and that will smoke them both.
