    Pinion gear/motor pin stuck

    Hi guys,

    I was running my E-Revo 2.0 the other day and I accidentally gave it full throttle while it was standing still and I then heard one loud click. After that, the car wouldn’t move and when I would try moving it by hand, it would just stay there as if something blocked it from being able to move. So, I checked the pinion gear, and I noticed that it is stuck and it won't turn. So I removed the pinion gear from the pin which goes through the motor and I realised that the pin is stuck and it won't turn.

    Does anyone know what the problem is?

    Thanks for your help.

    I don’t think a full throttle application from a dead stop would have done damage necessarily. I did just have a stock motor seize up on me about a week ago though. Same symptoms as you describe. I could barely turn the motor by hand. I opened up the motor and it was toast. You can open yours up and see if there is any damage.

    Yep...another bad motor. Contact Traxxas under warranty for a replacement.

    I would suggest opening the motor just to verify that’s the issue before ordering a new one.
