I have the same thing. Make sure you keep the gears clean. Small rocks can get lodged in there and burn up the motor! 
It also likes to collect dust and stuff. Take it apart once a month or so to clean it out. Its a load or fun, just dont take too many big jumps! I learned from that mistake! haha
Have fun!

yeah i can hear in the gears that they are dirty and i will be cleaning them out soon. do u think i would over heat the motor if i cover the holes? i plan to put a stiffer spring in the front so it doesnt fall over so much

You should be able to overvolt to 9.6V from 7.2 with no issues. I wouldn't cover the holes unless you make new ones to vent the heat. If you get mung from the bottom, see if you can put some in the top.

when i cleaned the gears i noticed that the motor covers the hole and stops the dirt from comming in, so thats not a problem like i thought it was.

well i took it all apart and went to take some pics and my camera wouldnt turn on, so there is no pics for today. i did the 9.6 v conversion. i took our the screws on the bottom and pulled the  body off. then i soldered the wires onto the wires from before. now i can use my 7.2 volt battery and 9.6 v battery. i should be able to play for a while. i have 3 batteries now.

neyou86 .. Good work on these 9.6 volt ..

On BIG-CRAWLER, I have two battery 7.2 volt 2000 Mah, installed in parallel ..

My running time is approximately one hour and more .. I am satisfied ..

The time, execution is very important, for fun.
