    Hey guys!

    a few months ago i bought a slash 4x4 (stock).
    It drove well for the first few months, but lately it has been trashing the spur gear, and by that i mean it just completely makes the spur smooth, after around 5 minutes

    I've already tried changing bearings and i've added an alluminum motormount
    I've also always checked the mesh when installing the gears and the slip was 3 quarters back from completely stuck.

    Do you guys have any idea what maybe the cause is?

    Oh and yes i can hear it slip when he's supposed to slip

    What motor and battery are you running? Is the gearbox and spur assembled correctly? Is there lots of play in the spur gear shaft? Are the spur gears plastic and what brand are they?

    im using the stock velineon 3500 brushless motor with 8.4v nimh packs, the gearbox and spur are correctly assebled , the spur gears are the standard traxxas one's. i'll check how much play there is on the spur gear shaft.

    One more thing. Is the spur gear shaft bent?
