Just got my GTP2E assembled and tried to take it out today. Not even 10 seconds of driving and I completely stripped out the plastic spur gear all around.

Now Im trying to find out what I did wrong and I think I know just want to confirm.

My setup is:
Mamba Monster
Neu Castle 2200kv
5s 40c

One thing I did was I used a 18t pinion off of my erevo setup which is 32 pitch I believe. A guy at my LHS told me that MOD1 and 32 pitch are identical. Im guessing that he is probably wrong and this is how it all happened. Or is the 2200Kv on 5s too powerful for the stock plastic gear?

You guys are the pros here so I figured Id ask. I did made sure the mesh was set well. The allen bolts holding the motor in were very tight and I dont believe the motor shifted causing this.
