My daughter's Night Crawler seems to shut off a lot while she's using it. Battery still has juice. This starts happening about 10 or so minutes after she starts using it. I don't think it's an over heating issue because she isn't running it hard. It just stops working but it's not turning off completely because the lights are still on. The crawler just won't do anything. Won't turn or move. I press the button on the ESC and it will go again for several minutes then stop again. Any ideas? Might end up upgrading the ESC/motor anyways...so that might take care of the issue. But still wondering about what's going on. The truck is new. Using a 2s Lipo that's properly charged.

Thank you sir.

I ended up figuring it out after looking at a bunch of HR gear listings and finally finding one which shoes both sides of the compound gear.

Lubricate the diffs. I had a similar problem with my LNC. Changed out the motor and speed control only to find out it was dry diffs.

What kinda lube? I have several types that I have for my mountain bikes. White Lithium, Slick Honey, Red and Tacky, Dow 44. Probably a couple others.

Good morning Nubster, I would say that any of the greases you have will work. The white lithium, or Red and Tacky would be my choices. A way to make them easier to grease in the future is to drill a hole in the axle housings that you can thread a 3mm screw into ( make sure your hole is in a bit of a cavity on either side of the gear) and get a syringe that will move your grease through and use it to put grease in the axle without taking it apart. I grease mine this way after every couple runs.

Hey Fish, it is good to hear he is still getting some use out of the axle upgrade.
Hope you guys had a good summer and stayed out of the Texas heat!
