Robinson Racing Hard Blackened Slash or Stampede 4×4 Spur Gear Install

Robinson Slash Stampede 4x4 spur gear options

Robinson Racing has a large offering of pinion gears, spur and slipper options for many of today’s popular vehicles. One popular gear upgrade is for the Stampede/ Slash 4×4 spur with slipper unit. The stock Traxxas gear is plastic so increase durability in this critical driveline part, Robinson developed a series of Hard Blackened Steel spurs. A 45T speed spur and a 50T and 54T standard size spur that accepts telemetry. We were in the midst of building a Stampede 4×4 when these gears arrived so we documented the easy install for those looking to upgrade.
