View Full Version : Troubleshooting: DB01

23-10-2010, 07:22 AM
Hi Guys,
I'm a newbie and just bought and assembled a new Durga DB01 and I'm running a Yeah Racing brushless 10T with tamiya slipper clutch and Lipo.

My first 2 test runs were brilliant, the car flew and I started tweaking the camber and steering angles and generally I was having a great old time.

However after my 3rd run in a gravel car park and then on smooth dirt surface the transmission started making a clicking noise so I stopped driving. :(

I took the spur gear cover and gearbox covers off to inspect but nothing looked out of the ordinary. I took the opportunity to tighten the drive belt tension by 1 click and applied a bit more grease to the diffs.

I then took it for a run and now the clicking has almost disappeared but now the drive isn't going to the wheels 100%. It's as if the motor is spinning hard but the car is only travelling at about 20% full speed. I thought it would be something to do with the slipper clutch so I've tried it on a variety of adjustments but nothing seems to work.

Please help, very frustrated don't what to do from here...

Have you inspected the differentials? Most transmission problems occur there in that car, especially with a higher power motor.
