Since my Scx10 runs the mirrored transmission i cannot use the stock gear guard , so i took advantage of the 15% easter discount at CKRC and ordered an Vanquish one, which can be run mirrored. It arrived on the same day as the HEYOK 4amp Winch controller.
please ignore the bad wiring on the HEYOK controller, thats my work , not Al’s. It works lovely , just need to stuff it into the electronics box.
The Vanquish gear guard consists of a motor plate with an extra 4th hole for better alignment, spacers and the cover itself . the installation is a simple bolt on job.
I also swapped over the 35t Torque master expert from the Wraith into the Cherokee. I rechecked the brushes and it seems the grinding sound has disappeared at least for now.
