tried that. the guy at the hobby store meshed them for me and it still threw the gear. he also checked the clutch bolt and said it was fine. and i asked him if i should buy an aluminum or titanium spur gear but he said it would just cause other gears to go out and i would end up spending more money

check the bearings in your trans, get a fresh pinion, and check the slipper setup. the metal in the new style 3 bolt slippers aint so great.

ive been working at a hobby shop for 5 years lol

Make sure the motor isn't moving on you after you get the gear mesh set right. hard landings/crashes can cause it to move slightly and then stripped gears happen.

well i just pulled the trans apart a couple weeks ago and everything checked out ok except for the differential. and i changed that out with a slightly upgraded one that just has metal teeth, but the casing is plastic. my slipper is good i think. had the guy at the hobby shop look at it and he said it was all good. it has the one bolt for the slipper clutch and then 3 to tighten it down.

motor shouldnt be moving at all. i make sure the thing is super tight before driving it and i dont really jump it or crash it. i just drive it in my street doing slides and donuts. lol
