    Telemetry Gear cover not fitting. Why?

    The only thing I can think of is that the input shaft of the gearbox is somehow incorrectly fitted. The clutch and gear seem about 1mm too wide for the cover. Has anyone had to sort this before?

    yes mess with it, also dont tighten that screw that holds the cover in place to tight give it some slack...

    Sounds like the spur gear isn't fully seated on the slipper clutch. Make sure it's fully tightened to the slipper clutch then it should install fine.

    Mine fits just great with both the magnet disk and the sensor cover installed.

    Still not fitting. The magnet holder seams about 1mm too thick. Everything looks seated properly.

    The distance (width) between the blue motor mount plate and the main gear is too wide. That rubs. Mounting the mag holder just makes it worse. it will then jam every 180 degrees. A solution would be if the little pin in the input shaft was closer to the gearbox this would fix the issue. I'm annoyed that this doesn't fit! I'm wondering if I am still doing something wrong here. I have even tried taking the slipper shoes out in case they were 'too new' (ie thick). It still catches....

    i have similar issues on my trucks running Mod1 gearing. I dont run telemetry so i can get away with just cutting the rear facing side off the cover and that way there is no material there to rub on the spurs.

    I may be talking rubbish. I'm sure the magnet holder only fits flush on one side of the spur gear, might be worth checking?
    I'm sure I did that the first time

    If it jams at certain parts of the rotation and not others that means that the spur gear is not seated firmly against the slipper clutch. You have to tighten it all the way, and make sure the text is facing out on the spur gear.

    Also tighten the slipper nut all the way to make sure the entire assembly is properly seated on the pin and that the pin is centered through the shaft.

    I can say with 100% certainty that the setup fits just fine.

    Can you take pictures? When you spin the input shaft does the spur gear run true or does it wobble back and forth?

    did u use the big or small magnet holder ? i think that there is 2 different spur gear covers. i had put the large magnet holder in on my car and it rubbed all way round. so i changed to the smaller magnet hold and it fit in without hick-up

    Quick fix, at least it helps, get your gear cover, put it upside down, stick two fingers from your right hand against the plastic where the sensor is, and stick two fingers from your left hand on the other side, and pull gently a few times, the plastic will bend a little and will no longer rub...

    Nin01 is right if u are running a magnet
    There is two types of magnet holders
    I was using larger magnet holder and that rubbed
    Then changed to smaller one and all is good
    I've since removed all telemetry stuff as got annoyed with tqi playing up

    I had a tq tx and rx then decided to get the tqi 5 channel system and just have had issues
    And I'm not going to pay a heap of money to send it to USA
    They should have someone in Australia repair it
    I never had issues with my erevo until I changed to tqi
    Now going back to the trusted tq

    Nin01 and Sideshow, that did the trick. Thanks guys. And Sideshow, after seeing my ERevo catch fire 50 feet away from me a few months back, the telemetry doesn't seem like such a bad idea. I'm loving it, on both my ERevo and the VXL, and all the extra tuning that comes with it. It has been great.
