Default 2nd gear trouble

Hello every1,

I ran another tank in my buggy last night, which was the third tank. Still very rich.

Even when I run it in a straight line it doesnt got into second gear.

Could this be because I am running it so rich or could there be a problem with second gear?

Any ideas?

Thats exactly what I have, I know it doesnt say 2 speed in the description but I confirmed with the tech there that it does have a 2 speed.

Maybe it would hurt to adjust it just a little.

From my on road experience it maybe adjusted to where it shifts immediately.
You adjust the spring or whatever it says in the manual not the mixture to make it shift.

sperera,

Where did you buy this car? I've not seen one in Melbourne before.

And if you're at all interested in racing, we're running this Sunday at Sunshine.

Cache Ya,
Craig.
