I just got a 8 turn tripple motor and the idle gear in my traxx keeps stripping. Is the motor to strong or is their something wrong with the gears.

Your motor is way to powerful. The tranny is designed for 20T's

replace the nylon one with an aluminum one or steel,,,im not sure which it is

I ordered the aluminum gear already and i also ordered the ball diff for the traxxas. Do you think that will help

Lemme guess..this is your first RC? What esc do you have also? Yes, the aluminum idler will help a ton, but i dunno about the ball diff. The diff already is pretty bulletproof. An 8 turn really isn't too smart on a Rustler..the tranny prob will have a hard time handling it, along with the bushings, halfshafts, and output gears.

Yes this is my first car but i had it for around 6 years. I already put ball bearings in it and put CVDs on it to. I have a tenkin G9 esc that has no motor limit.
