i keep stripping the gear that the pinion off the motor meshes to. this is number 3 and im pretty sure im getting the gear mesh right. can yall recomend an upgrade or one with a different tooth count to give it a lil oomph? stock gearing at the moment with a 12t motor and 2s 5400mah lipo

well if your stripping spur gears that consistently then one of a few things is going on.

either your slipper is too tight, your motor mount screws are not tight enough/not biting in, or your mesh isnt any good.

it may be one of those, it may be a combination of them.

when you play with gearing, for the most part, you gear for temps, not for speed. though some gearing changes can be part of the setup process. in bashing though its all about temperature control.

I don't think your mesh is right. After you set your mesh, the slipper setup should be able to spin freely with no binding. Double check to make sure the motor screws are tight.

get a team associated spur gear start with a 87 tooth one thats the stock size. but you will need to bore out the hole abit to make it fit on the shaft.

I stripped out a stock on friday at the track.....but I think my motor moved on me. My brother-in-law happened to have one he gave me. I did pick up a TA 87 tooth as a spare. I am running 3200Kv brushless.
