I have all my servo wires running over the transmission so that they won't bind on the shift rod. That didn't seem to help
I gots trucks and no idea what I'm doing!
Before you go through this work, try one more thing depending on how bad your shifting sticks. I followed these instructions and it still felt tight shifting one way. I ended up taking the transmission apart just to see how it all worked and figure out what else could be causing the binding. It's actually not bad to take it apart as long as you are careful and don't get gears fall out all over the place.
I found in my case, there is a rubber ring on the very outside of the transmission, probably to keep dirt from getting in where the shifting shaft enters. It was a tight enough seal between the shaft and rubber that there was too much friction with the shaft going in. With a little bit of lube, that fixed it up immediately and now shifting is incredibly smooth. I also adjusted the spring tension to my liking while the transmission was out but I could have gotten away with just a little lube on the shifting shaft in my case.
Just do it...they make replacement parts.VXL power
Not sure how to make a new post but I have a Traxxas summit.. I haven't had any problems with it until now but I had a rock wedged in between the motor and the shift rod to the rear diff lock so I had to loosen the motor to get the rock out and now that the motor is back and tight it's a lot louder and when I press the throttle or reverse it spins the gear for a second before engaging and starts to move.. I'm not really sure what the problem is.. I don't really want to tear into the trans I'm hoping the motor is just not placed or set right.. if there's anyone that could help me out I would really appreciate it! Thanks
Is your pinion to spur mesh good (The manual tells you how to set the correct mesh)it is normal for it to spin a bit before engaging.
It is the amount of free play in the trans and driveline.
