JQ Products Announces Maingear Fix On the way for THECar

Jan 10, 2011 No Comments by

Latest from JQ Products:

We received reports that some maingears have been breaking, and as we had not broken a single gear during the development of THECar we knew something wasn’t right. And as it turns out, we made a mistake. As you can see in the attached image, the production gear on the left doesn’t have enough material below the teeth. The pre-production gear on the right does. We are currently producing new gears which should be done by the end of the month.

So what now? Well if you have been running THECar without problems, you will probably not break the gear, as it seems to break immediately, or not at all. If you do break the gear, and do not want to try another one, you can run a Losi 45t gear, and use the JQ gasket, along with a Losi gasket, and it will work as a temporary fix.

When the new gears are done we will inform you how to get you free replacement
