Default Transmission question...

Hello,
i've searched the forum, and havent found anything to do w/ my problem.

running a Jugg 2, w/ TXT Tranny / axles gutts, GD600, Gems motor, and now i have the dredded "Clickety Clik" coming from the tranny. LST tires on Pro-line 40's w/ 1" wheel wideners.

1. do they make a metal gear set for the TXT / juggy tranny? if so, where can i get them?

2. how many have replaced the stock tranny setup w/ an E-maxx tranny?

i'm open to suggestions on tranny that won't strip on the first couple of obsticles.

Try redoing the gear mesh on the GD600, and when it goes in to the tranny?

^ What EeePee said. Set the mesh of the GD600 to the trans, I used a strip of notebok paper between the gears and tightened it in that position, removed the paper and it was set perfect. I have a GD600 and have no problems with it.

You could have possibly stripped a few teeth off the output gear in your tranny. I've destroyed a few of them and they have a “clicking” type of sound when missing a few teeth. Overall the TxT tranny is pretty bulletproof, but I always have a spare set of gears in my toolbox.

This might sound a little weird.

I have a weird sorta burnt-smell coming from the trans. And this is only with the truck being setup/ mocked up on the table, not long drive periods.

I just put together the TXT trans/gd6oo setup and its also loud as hell. No clicking noises, just a VERY loud gear whine. Atleast 3 times as loud as my TLT/Rustler setup. Reverse is not as loud, but still seems abit too loud.

I put a new gear in trans and the pinions were all new. There doesn't seem to be any kind of grinding or misalignment issues (slamming forward to reverse/ reverse to forward with no problems). Anyone know whats going on here?

Yeah, it's typical gear noise. Your gears are exposed, not noise reduced by a plastic gearcase. The smell, no idea...

With the motor removed, it spins freely and is very quiet. Just seems like its too loud though

Well I pulled the motor off and verified all the noise is coming from the pinion out of the gd600 into transmission gear. I reset the gear mesh using the paper method and its still the same as before.

The rest of the drivetrain spins freely with a minimum of noise. The weird smell is also coming from the motor. I'm not sure whats going on with it. Its a new motor and there doesn't seem to be anything inside of it that I can see.

Anyways, any of you guys know anything I can do to quiet the gear whine down? I tried some grease but it had no effect.
