Default Savage Help...

My spur gear keeps slipping and changing the pad and gear itself doesnt help. Can someone give me other advice?

its hard to diagnose without having it in your hands. have you tried calling traxxas customer service?

there might be something broke, you might have installed something wrong. its hard to tell

anything is possible. if youre blowing friction pads with the slipper set tight, something is definately broken, or installed improperly
