    Transmission Input Shaft Noob

    Should the gear on the transmission input shaft be so hard to get if off the old one and on to the new one?

    I had to pound the old one off with a deep-well socket and a hammer, and press it on the new shaft with the same socket and a vise. It seems like Traxxas would have found an easier way to do this.

    It is a pressed fit so what you experienced is normal. Just make certain that you indexed it to the steel pin securely. I always replaces both shaft and gear during a rebuild instead.

    Thanks, and yes, I make sure it lined up right.

    I have another truck to change over to the new style spur and slipper, I already have the shaft, I'll pick up a new gear for it this weekend.

    If you heat the top gear with a heat gun before you drop it on the shaft it'll go on a lot easier.
