    Unhappy Set button grinding/blowing up gears?

    When the truck flips over, I press the set button to make the truck get back on all 4 wheels(it only happens when it's upside down on its side). but when it starts to do it's thing it grinds away the gears and now it has blown up, we have to replace it for the third time now. So I was wondering if anyone was having the same issue?? (Truck is Xmaxx 8s)

    I really wouldn’t use that self-rightening option,it puts a lot of stress on the gears,I have never used it on my first and second xmaxx..

    As said don’t use it!! You’re flipping right at 20lbs of weight. Puts a bunch of stress on the diffs. Walk over and flip it back onto the wheels and save your diffs in the process!! JMHO.
