    Gearbox unit

    i got the caldera 3.0 and i got a question on the gearbox and spur gear the spur gear is warped and stripped out it is jumping up and down when hitting throttel so its loosing contact with the engine. would this cause it not to move that fast when on ground while the pressure is on it?. when i lift it up it does move. just wont move fast while on ground any tips?

    yeh, you gotta pull that trans out and check it out. the spur gear should move smoothly, and inline. it should not be warped or move other than rotating.

    There could be a bad bearing, that would allow the spur gear to move around.
