yes it is the bevel gear binding and it doesen't matter how many gears you put in its still there, i've also tried different shafts and still nothing.
I think the problem is the bevel gear is slightly made badly and it is of centre and i was wondering if anyone knew how to solve this
It can also be your gearcase is warped...
try swapping F&R
or buying a new one and trying that, its not expensive.
The 1280 bevel gear bearing also sits very floppily in the hole.
It is able to flop up & down... which does cause notchiness.
I have wrapped 1 layer Tamiya masking tape around that too,
Now when I yank the bevel gear out, the bearing stays stuck in there.
As for bad bevel gears... just put one on a shaft then roll it along
your tabletop with the bevel hanging off the edge. Inspect it as
it rolls and you'll notice any wobbling... but I haven't found one
bad enough to reject though.
On the SL I just rebuilding last night... there is a very obvious 2mm
that the red shaft is short by. Hence Tamiya's recent "fix".
Try shimming the one-way... had to put a 0.2 shim to move it
*away* from the bevel to remove all notchiness last night.
