Super stoked to run my kraton ran a 4s pack through it no problem then a 6s and same but on the second 6s pack heard weird noise and noticed pinion gear was missing a tooth and the rest of the teeth looked worn. gear mesh is good. so I need a new pinion the motor was at 151 degrees f so think i'll stick with 12 tooth any suggestions would be nice. also noticeably the shocks in front are way soft compared to the rear I think they may be on backwards and the fronts do not dampen at all but full of fluid. getting a new pinion and shock fluid just not sure what to go with. sorry its a lot just looking for some feed back. and that pinion is on so tight

Re-place the stock pinion with something besides the Arrma ones. They tend to strip out easy. They are red loc-tighted on, so you will need a heat gun to most likely remove it. Stock gearing will usually keep your temps down. The shocks on the front are supposed to be softer than the rear shocks. Try out Tekno Orange springs. Or you can just swap out fluids.
