Default A missing tooth on main gear

So i went to start my buggy the other day and i started it but then after about 3 seconds i hear a really high ringing sound then a crack then the engine stops So i figured my shoes were blown and a bearing blew up. My shoes were blown but my bearings were fine, and i bought new shoes and springs and put them on there. And i put the engine back on and aligned it, and just as a check, i rotated the clutch bell. It was a good mesh but then it jammed and i noticed that it jammed on a missing tooth gap on my main gear

I know i have to buy a new main gear,but would could have caused this? my bearings werent exploded when i checked my clutch bell so the clutch bell didnt come off of alignment on the crank, so what could have caused it? I dont want it to happen again!

what kind of vehicle is this? Everyones suggestions sound on par with what probably happened. you could of fractured a tooth, and it just happened to get chunked out completely when you refired your engine for that short 3 second period.

I've seen a couple lightweight kyosho flywheels do this same thing.

and you say your shoes were blown? what do you mean, were they just severly worn? or did they actually crumble appart?
