I don't own a Slash but I've had an E-Maxx for a couple of years.

On the E-Maxx the spur will get more and more distorted the tighter you crank down the slipper.

Something to look at. Put it on there loose and see how much it wobbles. Then crank it down and see how much it wobbles.

since these spurs we use are cheap and injection molded there's always the chance to get a "bad" one
I've seen it in every major and minor brand out there

just get another and you'll probably be fine

The tranny build on my DF-03 is actually brand new. I haven't even ran it yet. I've checked all the parts before installing them, and all of them are quite good. The stock spur (Tamiya 0.5 pitch) doesn't wobble.

I agree with RCabcs. The quality of injection molding versus machined spurs are quite different. Didn't Losi used to have machined spurs instead of molded ones?

Nowadays, I'm not sure if anyone out there makes machined spurs... Hard to compete on a shelf, $4 molded spur or $8 machined spur?

I've eyeballed my spur just now, and I do notice that it's not quite true... I look at it from the side, and instead of being a straight line, it's a little curvy. Oh well...
