    Exclamation Need Stampede 3.3 help!

    Hey guys! I recently converted my Nitro stampede to a 3.3 beast. I got it running using a few forum posts here, and it ran quite well. Then it started eating spur gears no matter what I tried. The guys at the local hobby shop are less than useful, They basically told me to just swap to a metal spur gear, So I did... Well, it ended up eating every gear in my gearbox... Soo, my question to y'all is, Do they make a metal gearbox and gears? Because I want it to scream and not worry about the plastic gears!

    If you are eating spur gears, then something is wrong. You either have a mesh problem, something loose, or chassis flex. Steel gears will only cover a problem temporarily. If mesh is right a spur should last a long time
