Just bought a Stampede chassis on Ebay. Turns out the tranny was full of sand and the idler was shot.
1. The idler inside was plastic which I found strange since it came with the newer, gray coloered chassis. I've used the aluminum idler before, but the steel one is $8 cheaper. Any reason why I can't use the steel one?
2. I wiped out the old grease and sand from the transmission and washed it out well. Can I use lithium grease instead of the standard all purpose type? It's all I have around the house right now.
Thanks for the help in advance.
