Default Spur Gear help..

K, I had a problem with my tranny so while it was out and being fixed I replaced the stock spur gear with a 40 tooth one. My question is, Do you have to replace the clutch bell as well for one with more teeth or is the stock one compatible? When I put it all back together it's not really moving that well, seems to be binding a bit and making noise when I push it forward. What do I need to do? Adjust the slipper clutch, get a new clutch bell...Lemme know what you all think.

Cheers

Cool, I'll check the manual out see what it says. It seems that the gears are to close together so I guess it's a matter of removing some shims under the motor or washers? If I get stuck I'll let you all know...lol

Thanks for the advice...and yeah it is on the Revo.

Cheers

Yeah I found the info in the manual, http://www.traxxas.com/products/nitr...evo-Manual.pdf that will open the Revo manual, and I beleive it's on pg#38. Hope this helps, it sure helped me. And yeah, this is the first time adjusting the gear mesh, what can I say...I'm a noobie!!

Cheers [8D]
