    Gears keep stripping - Traxxas Maxx v2

    Hi all, I have a Traxxas Maxx v2 and the pinion/spur keeps stripping. I've gone through almost 10 pinion/spurs at this point. With the v2, the motor mount has a pre-determined pin position hole to set the mesh. I've tried factory setting, looser setting, and tighter setting on the mesh. I've...

    Steel spur gear?

    So when I used to have a Savage I had plastic spur gears and was told metal spur fears would blow up the transmission? My new to me Savage X has a steel spur gear and a 3 spd tranny with reverse. Should I swap it out for a plastic or is my 3 spd strong enough and I should be good?
