Good morning everyone. Sorry I haven't been around for awhile. I had a back fusion done so I have been recovering from that. I have a HPI Savage X SS 4.6. My clutch bell stripped today. It had been stripping spur gears. I checked to make sure everything was tight. I tore the motor down thinking my clutch bell bearings wear bad. They were fine. I tore the truck down. I found no cracks in the engine mount or engine plate. The differentials are moving as they should. I am stumped. I found nothing that would explain spur gears and clutch bells being stripped. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Check the input shaft of the transmission (spur gear shaft), it might be bent, or the bearings in the transmission might be going bad...

It’s always a good idea to check the motor plate screws every once in a while, sometimes the vibrations works the motor farther away from where you tightened it down, that could cause bad mesh, if not caught.

Can’t think of anything else to check, maybe check if your motor plate is warped/bent.
