Default Traxxas Stampede On Street..Help!

Ok i have a question..i have a traxxas stampede with a mamba max everything else is stock..and i seem to strip alot of gears on it..i drive it mostly on street (pavement)..i was just woundering what i might need to stop that from happening as much...new tires,wheels, ect.

The reason i say tires is because the stock tires have alot of off-road tread. And when i stop it might be grinding the gears together because the tires grip very well.

Thanks for the help!

Try posting in the off-road electric forum but here goes mine:

Check your mesh, make sure nothing is grinding in there. You are stripping the spur right?

try to loosen up the slipper a little. With the intense torque of a high power BL system, when you hit the throttle, something has to give. In this case, the tires are hooking up on the pavement causing the stress to be pounded on the transmission. If you loosen the slipper, it will give slightly under a heavy gear stripping load. Instead of stripping a gear, you will slip the slipper clutch.

If you loosen the slipper, you should be fine with the ones you got.
