yeah replace the gear lol... sounds like you didn't have the gear mesh set right, or the engine came lose and moved. when you set it, take extra care to check both gears inside and out, cause the outsdie one (forward facing) make look ok, but if the engine is tilted sideways, it may not be hitting the other gear, or vice versa.

you can buy just that gear, or the whole trans.
either way the mesh either wasnt good....or you landed from a jump with the throttle on.
I use the paper trick to set mesh on a truck like that.
