LOL, it was really kind of funny. I had been running it in the snow the last few days, just beating the tar out of it. I had noticed a clicking that I knew was from the spur gear as I damaged it a tiny bit while torching off a pinion gear with a stripped set screw. So I kept running. Fast Forward today, I start to hear a much louder clicking which I believe to be yet another rear diff blowing up, so I keep running. Then I look down at the truck, which at the moment has no body on it, and see smoke coming from the gear cover........ Ooops. I unplug the batteries remove the gear cover and find this....
Glad I got a spare spur gear when I was at RC Pitstop a few days ago. I have been meaning to install the single motor mount for months now. I guess I'll finally be able to do that. I have never taken a spur off, nor have I have ever taken the clutch apart. Anyone got any tips for me? Should this be a straight up job.
Side note, fairly easy to tell which screws are Stainless and Which are not. I guess I really need to swap the front bulkhead screws. I have been swapping out screws when I have to take something apart and put it back together. I guess I have not had the bulkhead off yet.
