Default HELP for Sportwerks Chaos!

Hey i have a Chaos which I bought off of a friend w/ a Picco P-Zero engine in it. and I am having the worst luck w/ it it seems every half tank of fuel i have to replace the front imput gear......I might have had that problem solved cause I put a new one in and put 2 shims in & it worked good.......................for a few minutes Now the spur gear is stripped out. once I replace that I dont want it to happen again to the input OR the spur. Do you guys that have them have any idea of what is making it strip so easily on both and any ideas of what to do to fix it since this is my first nitro car

Thanks from a person in need,
Markus

Sounds like the mesh may be to tight. Be sure theres a little gap,or play be tween the teeth and that they are square with each other.

what do you mean "square with each other"
that they are aligned?

Yes. If they aren't straight they will wear faster.

It might be a good idea to replace the front bulkhead (the case that the diff assembly goes into.)

Also... you can shim the pinion... but you can also shim the diff side to side to get the mesh right on most cars. Not sure on that one though.

Ok......I out one shim on the pinion and two one the "diff side" and that helped to loosen up the gear mesh but I dont want it TOO loose cause that could also strip it out easier.It only takes about 30 seconds of Half speed driving to strip it out
