now for the hard one
I am running a Novak Ballistic Motor and and keep stripping spur gears. I have made sure the motor is tightened down ( I am not happy with the novak case as it doesn't seem to let you crank the motor down) and making sure my gear mesh is good
I even had another experienced driver tighten the motor and set the gears mesh with a new pinion and same issue. Its usually from me hitting something but I feel something else is not right. I am getting lunsford motor mount screws with the big cap to see if that will help.
Anyone experience this issue?
Hex wrench is 3/32" for the rear wheel screws.
I am using the Lunsford motor mount screws with good results. I ground away about 1/4 of the lower sunken aluminum washer (for clearance with bottom deck of pod) and roughed up the backs of both washers to maximize grip to the aluminum motor mount.
Having a soft bumper on the front of the car will greatly lessen impacts that can move the motor. Even Dumper of CRC has a front foam bumper.
