Your spur gear and clutch bell gears will "mesh" together if its too far you will chip gears, if its too close, you will strip gears, and blow bearings.

This kinda shows you what your looking at...I do it by feel, but I used to used parts bag plastic on my Buggy Instead of paper, I think you deal with alot more chassis flex in 1/8 scale off road...

Hope this helps. Skip to the middle...

when you put the gears together slide a piece of paper through them and take it out. There should be defined teeth in the paper but no ripping. If it is ripped its too tight and if there are no teeth then its too loose.

yup, tight enough to crimp the paper but not cut.

Mke sure you check it 360 degrees, cause sometimes it will be tight, then loose, just see if it feels the same 360..FYI

the right thickness of paper helps too. my losi manual is perfect. when you roll the spur back towards you be sure the paper sags back your way as well. be sure to take time to get mesh set correctly. quick change mounts can help you out a little in the long run.
