My son's 2 WD Stampede has gone down. Due to my lack of mechanical experience, this repair will be a learning experience. I just need some advice on what the problem is and how to fix it. Hopefully there are some in here that can quickly diagnose and write a script for it's illness.
I would check all of the gears and make sure they aren't stripped and the mesh is set correctly
sounds like the motor moved away from the pinion.
Ya can't polish fertilizer...
While you're at it, clean the motor and oil the bushings.
Put a piece of paper between the two gears for a rough estimate of gear mesh.
My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...
Just take off the black cover on the opposite side of the motor and you will see the problem.
And we thought toy grade RC's where cool...
Thanks everyone. Will do tonight and see what's going on in there.
That's exactly what it was. The motor mounts must have loosened up. The gears weren't quite meeting up. Thanks for the help.
tighten the motor screws enough that the motor cant move in and out, but rotates in the case (adjusts mesh) freely. jam the gears together tightly, then spin the wheels slowly with your hand. the motor should automatically set itself to the correct mesh position
I could have bought my LHS by now...
