Not to mention selecting a pinion that fit that setup would be pretty hard.

+1 seems like every brand Distributed by Hobbico has quality control issues.

Dude, every bit of that sucks.... Did you receive a brand new spur without teeth on it ?

I replaced all the stock hardware that secures the motor position. The screw heads seemed very soft. They wanted to round out pretty easy. Plus I applied blue thread lock on the new hardware I installed. I'll post a pic at the bottom of this message. You're gonna laugh. It looks retarded, but it works.

We were using it a few months back and talked about it on here. It works great. I also use it on my B5M mod buggy.

Finally got to run it at our practice night. Gotta say pretty awesome car. I put it in the hands of our 2 top 5 4 wheel guys and they were in love. Just need to work on better piston/oil combo other than that no complaints. I started pushing it really hard towards the end and it held up just fine looking forward to actually being able to drive with confidence and not always worrying about breaking
