    In proccess of owb change

    I was playing with the one way bearing on the starter and now it seemed to grip. Is it still most likely the problem?

    P.S. It has sat since August just said to myself let me get the old tmaxx running it is 2.5 it would may be work in the mornig but by mid day I hitting the starter so it would maybe grip. Do they worsen as they used in a day maybe from heat?

    When I had that problem before it was from a worn out shaft/guide. The oil in the fuel would get onto the one way and make it slip.

    Try cleaning it, if it still doesn't work change it out.

    My new owb's teeth are more space out than original. Did they redesigned the owb since they original 2.5?

    There are two versions of the newer 3.3/2.5 one-way bearing. One has more pins/teeth than the other.

    I don't understand what you're trying to say? I'm pretty sure the OP is referring to how the older OWB has more rollers/needles (12) then the newer one which has only 6 I believe.

    There have actually been 3 different bearings (bearing within the One way housing) that I’m aware of. None seem to be any more efficient or last longer than the others.

    I got the expensive fix to the owb. Take the engine out, along with the fuel tank and reciever battery. Then replace all that with a big battery, esc and a motor. Problem fixed.

    I cleaned mine with a electronic cleaner then threw them in some motor oil. They all have been going for about a year now. One of them is giving me problems so probably time to clean them.

    Hey, off topic question, but does anyone know how these bearings actually work?
