So did my first time ever run on a 6s and wow this things a monster. I was mostly on 50% throttle limit just to get the feel of power and eventually hit 100% before my batteries were low.

After my run I inspected the truck and noticed metal shavings from the stock pinion gear. Is this normal?

No not good! You sure that ain’t dust or maybe you caught some gravel. If it’s definitely metal I would suggest your mesh is too tight. Use the paper trick to set it if it’s something you haven’t done before

The mesh is way too tight! You can see the wear on the pinion and spur. Set it up so that the gears click slightly when you move the spur back and forth, just make sure it isn’t loose. In my experience, the paper trick only works on 48p gears.

Thanks, will definitely check the mesh. Here's what it looked like before the run. Not sure if you can tell if it's too tight from this angle but will definitely check it with the paper tricker before running it again.

Thanks, I'm sure Youtube has other options for me lol
