Default slash stronger transmission gears??

I have a brushless slash on a three cell lipo and i am always busting the same part in my transmission the: Shaft Slipper Clutch Roll Pin. Is their any aftermarket gears that would make the transmission more beef? I have seen the aluminum gearbox case but no stronger gears.

A friend of mine has a similar problem, and used a hardened pin (Team Associated part) in the transmission to keep that from happening.

Apologies that I do not have better information, but I would recommend taking the sheared pin and transmission to your hobby shop and approximate the size with the Team Associated equivalent part.. it is a hardened pin (not a roll pin)

Also happens much less frequently after loosening the slipper clutch to allow a little bit of slip with that much power. The Differential is the next weakest link, and we have shredded Diff gears as well. The Traxxas rustler transmission (used in slash) is one of the oldest and most bashed transmissions EVER and the beef of the gears is not really an issue.. you broke a cheap little part that kept you from shredding a diff.

Good luck!

There is a slash trhead which would be great for you... And considering everything you break are driveline parts, id say loosen your slipper. itll make it easier to control, smoother, and you wont break stuff all the time.

Our findings thus far have been that the Slash truck leaves the factory with the slipper nut tightened all the way down. The manual suggests starting at 1 turn out from tight and go from there. A tight slipper probably caused your pin breakage.
