Just seemed to have chewed a few teeth up on the factory spur gear on my 4x4 vxl pede. Just curious now that I am to replace this gear,what is the best Pinion/Spur gear combo for these 4x4 pede's?
Had the same thing happen to me over the weekend. Pinion gear came loose and the grub screw fell out and rattled around and ate up the spur. Replaced it with a stock Traxxas gear I bought at the local hobby shop. Took maybe 10 minutes.
My truck took a pretty hard hit and think it drew the pinion gear out on a slight angle into the spur gear causing my issue. It's a pretty solid truck but I seem to have issues everytime I take it out bashing.....
Oh, and when you change a pinion, make sure you use blue Loctite and if possible let it dry overnight for best results.
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
I just picked this truck up two weeks ago and am learning the hard way that these things can and will cost money. I have already installed RPM arms as I did snap one. I have been doing alot of bashing in the snow thus far and will be hitting ashphalt, gravel and mud, basically anything I can throw at this truck. I am running 2s 6000mAH lipos with this truck and I do have plans to get the Mips in the near future.
