Stripped rear ring gear.

Post by these_savages » Sun Sep 14, 2014 11:30 am

Last night at the track. Yes i brought the savage to the track and to my surprise it handled the track very well. (astro)

But after a while we started to get crazy (as usual) and after a lot of hard bashing the truck started making funny noises. pulled apart the rear yesterday and saw that the ring gear on the diff had several teeth broken off. the small bevel gear was also a bit worn, but no teeth broken.

Is this a common thing? Is shimming needed?
