Heres mine. I love this car. 13.5t brushless Trackstar system, 1 million gear oil in diff, handles great.

If you found one that fits... pls tell me too! I am looking for a solid axle that can replace the gear diff / ball diff - if there is one.. pls share!

Sadly, they've done nothing to fix the problems with the spur gears stripping...

If it is the spur gear that you have the problem - use the larger version grande gambado spur gear - which you will need:

New metal smaller gear
New durain larger gear
the new gear shaft
new bearings

ABC Hobby Grande Gambado CNC Counter Gear Set 50T / 20T #40609
ABC Hobby Grande Gambado CNC Counter Gear Set 50T / 25T #40608

These I have found have made the gears smoother and should solve the spur gear problems

but what I had in the past where the diff housing / gearing stripped - changing to these gear sets - the diff issues have never came back for me

Interesting, I wasn't aware that they'd made those changes. Might be worth revisiting.
Thanks for the info.

Also note the gear connected to the diff and outer spur gears have to change to 20 teeth as well
(Thus they are now both side 20 teeth)

I already have upgraded to metal gears, so is it only the Hobby Grande parts I need ?

Thanks

And again the outer small gear to 20

Thanks Otaku.
I was hoping to race it tomorrow and stripped the gear box down which meant taking the entire front end apart which is very annoying. When I went to re-assemble the shocks I found I had lost a half top hat bushing which does on the top of the shock. So I'll order replacements and the gears. Are you recommending the 50 / 20 ones ?

I am running 48/20 (I brought everything seperate instead of the kit...)
because during the time the kit was sold out so I have to buy all the parts seperately

Thanks Otaku521, the Grande parts have rectified my main issue with the Grid/Gambado of stripping the inner plastic gear. I actually made it through a complete day of racing with 3 qualifiers and a final. I used a metal 20 tooth gear on the outside diff shaft and coated my gears with silicone lubricant which made them less noisy.
I am in love with my Gambado again.

Most welcome! Hoped that it resolved issues that we all had 😜

What silicon lubricant that you are using? Mind telling me? I too looking for a better lube for the gears inside the gear box and outside with the spur gears too... because with metal gears running (20T and the new inner grande gambado metal gear ) you will see a little wear
