    Hey, I was out earlier tonight when my ECX Torment started making grinding noises when starting from a full stop. I took apart transmission and checked spur/pinion gears but there all good. I also noticed the motor was extremely hot (not enough for a burn, but you couldnt put your hand on it). Also, when you try to go from a full stop the car sort of jitters forwards, but as i said the gears LOOKED fine.

    Ok, I'll take it apart and see what I can find.
