How do you protect the TC3 gears from rocks flying up from the ground? I have gotten 3 rocks stuck between the pinion and spur gears in 2 sessions.
Any ideas other than cleaning the area first?
I had the same problem with my Tamiya TB Evo II.
What I did to solve it was to make a shield to protect and cover the spur/pinion area. I used the lexan from an old body that i had laying around and fabricated a shield.
I race on an unprepped parking lot with millions of tiny pebbles that at first ruined both pinion and spur after only one race.
Now I have no problem whatsoever.
If you like I can post a pic of the shield I made to give you an Idea.
Let me know if you want to give it a try.
