    Set your gear mesh right and you will not ever need them.

    Another way to strip gears is to have the slipper clutch too tight.
    It's a good bashing truck.

    i would rather buy the evader for racing rather than the stampede. they are around the same price, but the evader is faster, and i believe they are right at 200.00 on tower and you get a free quick charger. But that is just my opinion.

    -Stripping gears-To have the teeth of a gear broken off or rounded off making them unable to mesh with other gears(I.E.-pinion,clutch bell,Spur gear).

    Metal gears make it so they are very hard to strip
