Yup.. the one way lasted 1 trip to the track and went out again.
When I cleaned it out again it lost about 4 roller bearings..
It's now a spool. the glue trick works great..
The old LRP brushed esc didn't have reverse.. that was kind of annoying so I put a Novak GTB in with a LRP X12 17.5 motor.. It's still geared for the brushed setup so I need to work on that.
We also found that the steering was binding..
Closer inspection revealed that the from A arms had been installed upside down swapped left to right.
I tore the whole front end apart and got it all together the right way and dialed in.
Driving much better now.
