    You probably had the pinion/spur mesh too snug and put too much stress on the system. Especially if you ran for 1 hour continuously.

    Front springs are shorter. They come with the LCG kit.

    You also have to shorten the servo turnbuckle and reverse its operation on your radio.

    People here have no idea what racing is or what it means to be in a stock Slash class. Mostly bashers whose only solution is a ton of after-market parts.
