    I'm happy with mine. Only issue I had is that the motor was loose right out of the box. Tightened the 2 screws and she's been running like a champ for several months.

    When this happened to me, it ended up being the receiver and Traxxas sent me a replacement for free. Not sure how old your truck is, I would encourage you to give them a call.

    I'm guessing gear mesh as well. I'd also be sure nothing is bent. I had misalignment on the front and found the steering linkage was bent, cheap and fairly easy repair.

    Started experiencing steering issues with my 8s yesterday, and upon inspection noticed that the steering linkage (1/2 of part# 7747) was bent but not broken.
