    I am not a fan of a metal spur gear. There are too many other things that can be damaged. Learn how to properly set the gear mesh and forget about it.

    If you run your truck in wet conditions, you can get water in the tire foam. That will cause a wiggle until you put pin holes in the tread of the tires to release the water.

    My daughter has had her truck for many years. It has the O.G. El Sob special motor system in it. It runs 2 and 3s lollipops its whole life and it still retains the original CV axles.

    By far my favorite esc is the Mamba X esc by Castle Creations. It is a strong esc with almost limitless ways to program it using the Castle Creations software.

    Do you get the Ultimate edition? I will probably never have a Slash 4x4 that is not an Ultimate edition. The aluminum parts are located where you need the extra strength and durability.

    esc problems

    I would just rebind, reset the whole system. Set everything to zero on the transmitter and reset it. If that still doesn't work Robinson it to the esc.
