    The pitch is larger for nitro which makes it easier (to me at least) to mesh 32p gears. I have to really get in there and watch what I'm doing when I'm meshing my 48p electrics.

    I shredded my idler gear in my stampede recently with a stock XL-5 setup, LOL. Turns out I had the slipper all the way tight. I have no idea how long it was like that! :lol:

    I suggest cleaning the motor and inspect all of your gear teeth. You should hear the same clicking whether you free roll it or run it under power.

    Try holding one rear tire and spin the other. See if it makes noise. It should make noises whether or not you push it or run it if it was the transmission.

    Got a new set of axles for the front and changed from a 26T pinion to a 23T. Still running the 86T spur so we'll see how the motor likes this gearing. If it still gets too hot I guess I will look...

    No, I'm using the Sidewinder SV3 4600kV. I cant remember my pinion (maybe 21t?) but the spur is 86T. I'll try to get a number for the pinion. I am running 1/8 buggy wheels/tires.

    I think they should have come up with a new name. Even for the 4X4 stampede. It can be confusing for the average user looking for parts. JMHO
