Default The dreaded, and all too common transmission click.

So...

I had been working on this truck for months in my spare time, and finally got it all together.

I ran it around the yard a couple times, and everything seemed smooth. Then I took it to my local rock garden, and after about three or four minutes of run time, it's clicking badly in the output to the front.

I bought the kit back in june, so it should be the updated case, but I don't know the difference. Can someone tell me how to know for sure, and if it is the updated trans case, is there a fix for it?

Thanks.

Which truck are you having problems with?
It's doesn't say... of its a GOM I might be able to help, I don't have any other Gmade trucks though.

Thanks Soze...

It is the new case, and I haven't gotten to tear into it yet, but I am guessing a got some poorly produced sintered gears and knocked a couple of teeth off. I will see this weekend.

I have a couple of Gmade rigs and the one included the updated case in the box and the other one didn’t. I emailed Gmade and they sent me the new parts for free in about a week. Haven’t had any misfortunes with gears breaking but I’m well aware of the possibility so I didn’t go overkill on the motors. Now that the Gmade rigs are gaining popularity it would be nice to see SSD or Robinson make steel gears for these. I did email SSD about the possibility and of course never heard back, but maybe if others put the bug in their ears, who knows?

Well...

it was totally my fault.

I tore it apart last weekend and I had left the inner bearing out on the output shaft. It' kinda weird, because I don't remember any left over parts.

Anyway, I had one in my tool box that fit it, and it works fine now. No more click.

Been there, done that my friend. Good to hear that you got it figured out. Aside from a small issue or two theyíre amazing rigs. Anytime someone asks about mine at the local track and I hand them the transmitter their jaws typically drop to the floor.
