I need to tune a couple things out, my pinion chewed up my spur. I had the stock pinion with the stock spur. With the stock motor, everything was fine. with the 7.5 turn Turnigy trackstar, the car made some cracking/snapping sounds under power and on the brakes. it was getting worse so I threw in the towel for the day. Here's what it looks like after all that noise:
Plastic Debris all over the place.
It's in all the corners
Spur is chewed up pretty good
Motor mount spot looks good to me but together, the motor isn't as tight as i thought it should be.
Driveshaft cup got pushed down
driveshaft cup cut a grove
Really nasty down in there with all the plstic shavings and grease. it was clean before the run.
Is this thing supposed to flop around all loosey-goosey?
Here's the pinion gear after the run. You can see the teeth are a little twisted in the picture of the spur chewed up above.
It was running just fine at first, you can see in this video:
Thats duck tape. At first i was just taping the body back togehter but it ended up with a layer all over it and then a racing stripe. If you think it's ugly, you should have seen it before...
So, what do you fellers think is wrong here? I'm new to tinkering on this tt01.
Edit: Something occurred to me. The stock brushed motor got REALLY FREEKIN' HOT when it bit the dust. I'm thinking the heat may have damaged the motor mount slot on the tub chassis, allowing the motor to wiggle and un-mesh.
