Duratrax Nitro Evader ST
My Son and I just got into Nitro trucks and he is having a major problem with going through Differential gears. Owners manual says to adjust after you hear it slipping. Well, we never got that warning. It just melted the gear. Installed another and adjusted per manual and went 4 laps on a 50 foot oval dirt track and went through another. Installed another Diff gear. Drove a few laps. Checked the tension again and it seemed to loosen up. Readjusted and drove. Went through another gear. Called Duratrax Tech line and was told how to adjust the tension, we found we were adjusing properly. However the Tech said the adjusting nut belonged on the right side (passenger side) of the truck. The nut in the truck and on the exploded view, are on the left (drivers side). Installed another gear and moved nut to the right side of the differential. Drove and went through another gear in about 6 laps. This is the 6th Differential gear he has gone through.
