The following teeth after the ones that are missing will now take more pain under usage. Even though only the one is missing the clutch bell is now transfering the power to a further point and now the next tooth has to carry a greater load. You can still run it the way it is but understand you have been given wise advise and when you rip another tooth it will take out your clutchbell on its way out, possibly damaging your clutch.

It's a Traxxas, you don't need no stinking spur gear replacement.

because either your spur gear has a casting defect or it suffered impact at two different points. Either way, it's in a weakend state.

Additionally, when you're skipping a tooth, the clutchbell pinion gear gets slightly out of whack and it hits the next tooth on the spur gear just enough to tap it. multiply that by 40,000 times (at WOT) and you get the idea. They fall like dominoes.
