    So to be tactful, Iíd lay money your gear mesh is the issue. However you can buy GDS hardened steel gears. Thatís what Iíve got. Love em.

    If the shaft slipped, the gear wouldnít turn, maybe it caught in a spot and shredded the gears. Either way I got my pinions from NovaRC(formerly Kershaw), and spur is the one you shared.

    i installed a 15/54 gearing just so i could drive it again..... i removed all the broken teeth before fitting had to take the truck apart used the right motor pins and testing to make sure the motor screws where tight and just drove it around and around in a circle all was working fine until i took it inside on the carpet and was just testing it back and forth about 3 meters both ways and i stripped them heard it happen they just shattered. what am i doing wrong?

    Youíre using the pins, which is not inherently wrong. Itís a great idea with poor execution. They donít provide a proper mesh. Too much of a gap in the mesh. Remove them, check out a few videos to get the gear lash set right. You wonít have the issue again.

    I'm about to to use 15/54t gearing on my xmaxx 8s. I don't use the pins. I'm assuming the gearing could work? I do my mesh manually.

    Robinson racing will have a great pinion. GDS and Hot racing have great spur gears.
