    32 pitch pinion wear

    I've installed the 32pitch gear set and the pinion wears out after three packs with a brushless setup. Is this the average time people are getting or do I need to rework the gear cover to keep the dirt off it?

    i would say check your gear mesh.... 32 pitch is supposedly alot more durable then stock gearing

    i use a special wax lubricant for bike chains. doesnt attract any dirt on the 32P. havent had any strip or wear out in 7 months of hard racing 4 slashes.
