Hello.Having trouble with my Typhon 3s stripping the rear plastic diff spur gear. It is stripping just a few gears in on place. Could the slipper be to tight, seems to happen at the tracks with several jumps.
How’s the traction and longevity?corralled python buggy tires
I would loosen the slipper and stop landing jumps on throttle.Having trouble with my Typhon 3s stripping the rear plastic diff spur gear. It is stripping just a few gears in on place. Could the slipper be to tight, seems to happen at the tracks with several jumps.
I think he’s talking about the diff ring gear.Is it possible you’re setting the gear mesh wrong? If the mounting plate isn’t bent, and the mesh is set properly with locktight, then you should be getting many runs in before it ever becomes an issue.
Could always get a metal spur gear
Good traction,I would always gear mine to 65ish mph gearing,an I would destroy all buggy tires...I would always reglue an vent them soon as I received them....I've tried about all buggy tires an these corrally ones hung in there....grp makes some good buggy tires alsoHow’s the traction and longevity?

Oddly enough we don't go through many spurs after sealing the power module on every 3S rig we have. The power modules stay MUCH cleaner, we also have not smoked any motor bearings since... Arrma should have designed these as sealed units even if they had to shrink the spur a little.... I have told them this multiple times, they don't seem to care... I guess motors are cheaper to them.Probably already bent the Motor mount. It is weak and too thin. Very common problem with Arrma 4x4 rigs, if you drive hard and crash alot. The plastic spur is junk, if it stripped. Even one tooth. The spur will keep on stripping more and more, once it is damaged. Look over the motor mount. remove it completely and place on a flat surface to evaluate for straightness. The slightest bend or tweak causes loosened misaligned mesh.
Also, use blue Threadlocker on the 2 motor mount screws or the mesh will loosen and gears will slip.
Dirt and debris needs to be cleaned out of the Power Module regularly and often enough.. This can also wear out the gears.
There are $$ upgrades that may or may not help prevent this. Upgraded steel Spur gears and hardened/thicker Motor mounts, etc.
JennysRc.com has stock replacemnt parts for less $$ in some cases.
>>>>> @parcou made a good point there.
That is the reason we still use plastic .If its the Diff's ring gear you could always spend $75. rolleyes on a machined metal one. Stay away from the sintered pot metal ones however. They chip and crack.
It is a 70/30 like factor but on the 3S rigs like the BR & Granite using the plastic rear diff with the metal HR yoke worked well for me to remove that plastic yoke flex and save the input gear. Many like the HR yoke and reading the same older post few do not.That is the reason we still use plastic .
Arrma must be making a fortune off those $75 3S CNC Metal Diffs (each).
On the plus side I hear the sintered 4S diffs (that also work on 3S rigs) are very durable. Those assemblies are only $65 Ea.
The Corally wheels are weak: they have been shown to break on jumps. I replaced the ones on my Corally Radix6 with solid disc wheels.Slipper adjustments,big heavy tires will do it every time.landing under power also....are you running stock tires???BTW welcome to the forum,,JENNYRC is where we all buy parts from,by far the cheapest,best parts broker..ya can use the 4s metal diffs that are much stronger...turning punch down on esc will also help..could also try the corralled python buggy tires..extremely light an durable..
These buggy tires are much lighter than most all others..like 65grams each if I remember correctly. Much easier on diffs...direct fit on typhons
I upgraded to the hot racing metal gears and case and haven't had any problems since and I've run up to 6s so far. I also put in a spool and eliminated the slipperHaving trouble with my Typhon 3s stripping the rear plastic diff spur gear. It is stripping just a few gears in on place.
