I think its the car. Both my 2 TA05's have been retired because of this.Both my Xray's (T1 & T2) have absolutely no issues like this. When I showed a couple of guys at the track just how much grit was collected in the car, they were dumbfounded.
Both cars have different bodies so its not that. Even tried blocking up all the holes on the bottom and made a perspex upper deck for one to try & keep the wee stones out. No grease on the gears either.
I know some other TA05's have this problem from posts on forums.
Sucking up a cigarette butt was the last straw (along with another set of
gears ruined after 5 minutes )
I'm interested to see what Mousey's problem turns out to be..
