    Kraton I can't figure this out

    I've looked around and found a similar thread, but there wasn't an answer that fit my issue. I get a grinding gear noise whenever I brake or reverse. It didn't happen stock, only since I changed the diff oil in all three diffs. I thought it was the rear, so I rebuilt it today and took it out...

    Kraton Planning on getting Trenchers 40 series - do I need to gear down to 11T Pinion?

    I am planning on buying new, bigger, heavier tires for my kraton - will I need to gear down to an 11T pinion? I already have a Hobbywing motor heatsink and fan

    Typhon Optional Pinion Installed heat sink + fan for off road?

    Everyone I got a question. I just installed the optional pinion in my typhon 6s. It says clearly not to go off road with the bigger pinion in. If I put a heat sink and fan around the blx engine if i go off road will it burn the engine?

    Senton 2S Senton Mega pinion upgrade?

    First time RC owner: Will the Arrma 27T pinion gear work in my stock Senton Mega? I am running 2S batteries but besides that everything is stock. I pulled the motor assembly out and saw that the housing has mounting holes for the motor marked “27T” but just want to make sure before I order it...

When i switched to a 15t pinion for 2 weeks pinion was fine but i broke the slipper endplate in the back instead.. and also stripped 2 screws in the motor mount...

    Outcast Outcast 6s 12 tooth pinion. Hot centre diff

    Hi all, I'm back on my stock 12t pinion for the Outcast on 6s. Went for a 5 min play in the park and when finished noticed the centre diff cog was super hot. Should this be the case. Was a lot of wheelies and front wheel spinning in the air. My cogs seem to have a tiny bit of play between them...

    Kraton Arrma kraton 4s pinion

    I was wondering if upgrading to a 15t pinion would be great? Im seeking more speed on 3s but don't want to lose the ability to wheelie a bit. Did i do the wrong choice?

    Typhon Pinion grub screw is rounded

    So when i wanted to bash my typhon today. After 5 minutes i noticed a tooth broke off from the pinion wheel. I went back home anf took off the motor with the diff. I tried to loosen the grub screw but it really doesn't want to move even a bit. I heated it up with my solder iron, that also didn't...

    Typhon V3 16t pinion with motor fan

    So a friend of mine gave me a motor fan, so i thought: now i can run my 16t pinion with 6S without the motor getting too hot. Is the only problem with running a bigger pinion the temperature? Or also resistance and-or other forces on the motor? And what temp is the maximum to reach for a...

    Typhon Pinion wheel

    I was looking at the pinion wheel and found it like this. It seems to have a little offset. Is this normal? And if it is, is it better in terms of efficiency and lifespan?

    Typhon 14t or 16t pinion?

    Hi guys, I have an typhon 6s v3 (i run it on single 3s). There is an (long) story behind that but it doesn't matter. So i was wondering, the manual says the 16t pinion is only for high speed runs and not for start stop driving bashing, etc. since it is bad for your motor. But the V4 typhon...

    Kraton Grub Screw Backed Out - Thread Lock Recommendations

    Hi all, After only 3 packs, my new Kraton's grub screw backed out of my pinion and took a bite out of my motor mount. Luckily, I don't see any major structural damage even though I didn't notice until the end of the run. My question is, what kind of thread lock is recommended? I didnt see...

    Granite kv-pinion thoughts

    So in my homemade bigrock/granite conversion I'm running a 1900 kv motor with a 26 tooth pinion on 3s. It runs like a raped ape. I'm happy with it but I'm not sure when the weather actually makes it too the plus side of 0* whether or not its gonna overheat or not? Whats your thoughts?

Have the axial 60t steel spur it's been good just chewing pinions. I want to find a good setup and nothing else has worked if I could find a motor mount that is...

    Kraton Getting Irritated at pinion

    So took the motor out of my brand spanking new Kraton to swap the pinion. I wil NOT come off. I have tried heating it, soaking in solvent, prying it, Even tapping the motor shaft from the top while the pinion is in a vice. I have now tore up the top of the motor, and still no closer to getting...
