    That is a simple fix, epoxy the striped out wheel nut into the striped out wheel. Then it will be as good as new, besides the fact you will not have a separate wheel and wheel nut.

    That happened to me to. Are you still planing on getting a aluminum tranny? If not play around with some bigger screws, just trim them to length and you should be good to go.

    If you greased the pinion and spur gear, do not expect them to last long. I did it once, got in about 20 runs before they were ruined. And that was a XL-5.

    The T 600 is a 550 motor, not a 540 or a 600(like it's name implies). However a 540 heat sink should fit, from what I have heard the can diameter is the same as a 540 just the length is different.
