The RTR mounts are different (taller). Get the kit if you already do not have RTR.

Yes start with kit...... You will be better off. I got the RTR and I have spent a lot of cash to get the tuning parts needed to match my driving skills. Buy the kit....

posted this on the grid as well. I was at the track today, cased a jump pretty bad, made it one more lap and heard some bad noises. Shut the car off and saw this.

Yup, I had the same happen, but it was from landing 20 feet past a 40ft jump for a BMX track... With out a slipper clutch, the stress has to go somewhere. You probably landed on power....

To quote my friend Jeff, "I'll be the first to say that will buff right out."
I heard the Robinson racing ones are stronger than the stock stuff.
Might give them a try.

BTW - At lesat clutch bells cost less than Servos.

I had this happen 2 times since I put the C6 in but never before. I switched to Robinson racing for the CB. The thickness of the metal between the bottom of the CB teeth and the outside of the front CB bearing is much thicker on the Robinson ones. Also it seems to wear slower than the losi CB.

Ive had this happen to me too. But its because the motor mount screws came loose, after I had threalocked them. Now Im always looking at all my screws and nuts. I do have the Robinson one but just havent had to put it on yet. Maybe I should because my luck it will happen in a main.

Tex- Do you have that # to Plano HS?
