    Is this a normal for the spur and pinion gears in the X-Maxx?

    When I roll my X-Maxx back and forth, the sound and feeling from the pinion/spur gear is funky to me... may just be how the X-Maxx/metal gears are...

    It's not slipping, as far as I can tell... and I've run the truck hard... so I think the mesh is OK... All the teeth looks fine.

    Here's a video.... your thoughts?

    Thanks!

    If it's not breaking, you're not doing it right.

    Yup thats normal, not to worry. Its just the magnets in the brushless motor making it jerky at very low speeds. That being said, its not meant to go slow!

    Yes, that is normal. While you are in there make sure the grub screws are tight.

    Funny I changed the gear on my 2.0 ERevo and it’s mesh is fine run fine but makes the same noise! Defies logic but so far so good.
