    2650kv mamba monster gears?

    I have a slash 4x4 with mamba monster 2650kv on 4s and almost every time I run I strip out my spur gear, so if anybody has any suggestions on different gears than please let me know.

    You should not be stripping gears if the mesh is set correctly

    How tight are you running your slipper clutch ?

    The stock spur should be fine. They are the same ones ran in the 10+lb E-revo. I would look at either improper adjustment, or the motor moving, for the cause.

    i agree. its the same spur(besides tooth count) used on the erevo brushless. it should have no problems on 4s and such a light truck.
    maybe your motor mount bearing is going out and giving some play.

    If your spur and pinion are lined up correctly and meshed well you will not strip spurs

    On the subject of gear meshing do you guys use the notebook paper method?This works good for me with smaller pinions but when i installed my 18 tooth pinion theres seems to be binding so i roll the truck and set it that way with the larger pinions.

    Well you guys obviously have never had a 2650kv mamba monster in your 4x4 slash with 4s lipo cause i have done the mesh perfect and even had the guys at my hobby shop do it

    Baaa, the 2650 in the Slash on 4s is nothing. I have ran the exact same spur gear ,54tooth, in a E-revo, that weighs twice as much, with the 2200 motor, which is bigger then the 2650, with Big Joe tires, that weigh 1/2 pound a piece, on 6s, and it held up fine.

    So as we said , either you are not setting your mesh correctly, which you assure us you are, or you need to look for another problem. Slipper, bearing, motor movement, ect, there's lot's of possibilties.

    I run mine with thw 2200kv on 4-6s sometimes and havnt had a mesh issue.If it where me i would try and hold the truck in the air and let someone throttle it and maybe shake it to see if somehting did move even though castle dosnt recommend this but thats what i would do, but than again i am very very strong and i know i could control it under wot, just a thought goodluck!
