Picked up a used car with parts just to have. In the pile of stuff was the chassis that I guess would be for the 1/7 scale car. Looks like the same hole patterns, just much more space between the diff's. Anyone know if the parts are the same, but the chassis and drife shafts??

Might be fun to have a long wheel base car as well as short .......

That's basically it other than the rear shocks on the 1/7 are also laying down, so there is a different shock mount.

Well, the DM-1 ate yet another spur-gear...

Anyway, gonna order a few more. When you guys order gears, do you tend to experiment more with SG gearing or just go up or down on the CB? Thanks.

(just wondering if I should maybe try 45/49 for ex..)

What appears to be the cause? Is your engine shifting, or are the mounting screws loose?

Dunno.. Maybe the mesh was too tight?? Does it have to be extra loose or something? I had it set like I would on anything else - enough that if you hold the CB, and wiggle the SG, it clicks just a bit.. I started out with Savages years ago, so I learned how to mesh.. (all my buggies and truggies and MT's have been fine...)

I have always set the pinion to spur gear mesh so that there is a very small amount of play (like 1/2 mm). Also make sure that the alignment is parallel.

Which spur gear is getting stripped, first or second gear?
Imediately after the spur gear strips, what has changed?
1.Has your engine shifted, are the engine bolts loose?
If any portion of your engine or pull start is touching the chassis when it is bolted down, it will easily vibrate loose.
2. What is the condition of your first gear one-way bearing?

I had just strapped in my regular engine for the car(Go GXR 5-port), and was just warming up around the track. Didn't even rev all that high - 1/2 throttle at most.. Then it went "wwaaahhhh...", and I knew something was up. The forward SG is fried down about half the length of the teeth. For the time being I re-meshed the gears with the front of the CB closer in to try to see if it will still work.. Possible I had the front gears wider apart than the rear gears - like a V.. But I am already being VERY careful when meshing, precisely to avoid c.rap like this.. I recently tore down the 2-speed and re-thread-locked everything..

I've meshed LOTS of gears over the years - MT'S, buggies, truggies, SC8, onroad 1/10, Hyper ST 1/10, Minizilla, and on and on.. So far this car just seems like a total PIA in the 2-speed dept(which is especially aggravating, as I got this car, which has ZERO local parts support, over the IGT2, because I had heard the IGT2 had.... yep, 2-speed issues...) I have run Losi LST2's for years too - which have a similar mesh with both gears. And I have NEVER fried an LST2 SG...

I have two 1/7 chassis', so if the current 2-speed gimp-job doesn't work, I'll throw the 2-speed from the other chassis in. If that fries, I'll throw the whole car somewhere where I can't see it, and in six months either order MORE parts from the other side of the world(again... - including that stupid Kyosho CB with Evolva pinions that doesn't even fit over the clutch I run.. €50 wasted.....), or ask about some kind of 2-speed upgrade or 1-speed conversion.., or IDK, just give up...

It doesn't matter how experience you are sometimes stuff like that seem to be inevitable. I have been in this hobby for 22 years and I still get the stripped spur now and then. But not as often as you do (herrsavage). This past race day I stripped a set and upon inspection the mesh was correct, the motor was tight and it was level (no V). But the center transmision posts had come loose so the mesh was not correct. So use locktite and the old paper between the CB and spur trick. I use a small strip of notebook paper between the CB amd spur. Adjust the motor mount and then take out the paper. Then recheck the CB to spur and see if they rotate freely. Also remember that sometimes the spurs are not perfectly round so rotating the spur a few tikes you can notice if you have a defective spur. Hope this helps...

I still also have the bad-ish habit of threadlocking engine to mount and mount to car from my Savage days, so the engine is definitely not shifting. I will check the mounts(though I went through and re-tightened all screws prior to going out last time before it stripped..) Thanks..

Well, I just ordered 5x new SG's, giving me three whole new sets..

I was just wondering though: the kit I have is a 1/7 "Sport". That means, it's got plastic chassis braces. Is it possible my stripped spur gears are down to chassis flex?

And if so, which part number from the buggy or truggy - or which buggy and truggy parts do I need to get the alu or CNC chassis braces?

What chassis braces are you other 1/7 guys running?

Thanks..
