    I'll tell you something mike.... That is quite an accomplishment... I havent stripped a spur gear in years (when i first got into the hobby). But I never knew that anyone could strip a REVO gear in a jato... (I actually never stripped a revo gear in a revo..)

    First gear- mesh too loose (do the paper method, you could even use a paper towel folded in half)

    Second gear- mesh set right- slipper too tight...

    You guys laugh but I've seen it done by others before, same scenario redman, first too tight, then over correct for number two!

    I bought my Jato new back when they came with the 2.5, and I put an OS .18 in it a year ago. I'm still running the original spur gear

    It's all in the mesh!

    it's exactly the same spur/cb i'm using mikesr !
    tripple check the mesh, do the paper test again.
    ..also try this : with your finger rotate the spur fast by
    hitting it : if it's moves freely with smooth & harmony along
    with the cb it should be correct, but if you heard grind sound so that's mean your mesh is too tight.

    Ok,
    1-Carry out the paper mesh test http://www.traxxas.com/support/kb_se...highlight=mesh

    2-If the correct mesh is o.k, you should easily move the spur with your finger and you shouldn’t hear any grind sound. Grind sound occurs when the spur becomes too tight to the cb.
    When you’re rotating the spur with your finger, it should move freely.
