Make sure your engine is mounted tight to your chassis some time the vibration can loosen the engine screws and cause this effect
Am not having a go @ anyone but if you feel I disrespected you am sorry I just get piss reading about this stripe gear shit…one luv…
Was I hating? In reality if you read what I said, youll notice Iam just pointing out what I think personally of the kit. I dont need to be seasoned with a car to see whats going on or to point out my thoughts or theories on a problem. I can read it for myself from start to finish its all throughout this thread. Im not the first to say it and probably wont be the last.
This is not a problem created by the user , it is a problem created by mugen , fixed or better yet...."avoided" by the user.
Case in point. I take care when aligning my gear mesh on my previous r40 kit but beyond that it wasnt anything that needed a doctorite of gear mesh to get right. I ran the same gears the entire year and they looked brand new. But on the flip side the r40 had a very problematic clutch system. It was very hard to get right. And ill be the first to stand up and blame hpi for that. So much so I had to goto a mugen clutch system and as soon as I did that. It was solved. Meaning that the design of the mugen was right. It was not a user error , if it was the mugen would have netted me the same results.
I didnt need to take special care to get it to run right. I simply assembled it by eye and went to the track and nothing but sweet sweet engagement. Where on the r40 race after race and tweak after tweak still got me nothing but frustration and improper engagement.
I think the same issue is at hand here for the mugen. Its just tricky and this is why I say its mugen design fault. Just as it was a hpi design fault on the r40. There shouldnt be this much tending needed to keep a gear from stripping out. In the end its up to the user to fix or avoid and deal with this problem as best they can to get this design problem to not show its ugly face.
Anyhow if you notice at the end I said the car is great and theres not many cars that dont need ironing here and there. If anything if your offended by my post you have what I call personal product choice aggression. Where a person says something about a product you simply bought and you take it personal. Did you make the car? No , then please dont get angry over something thats not of your own creation. I own the car too and I bought it even with knowing first hand of the stripping problem from the first day it happened at kissimmee raceway. If someone says something about its downfalls theres no reason to stick up for it, unless there wrong and in this case. I find it really hard to blame me for being so.
I know a lot of people who dropped this car and moved onto the RRR just because of this problem. I got a good deal on this kit and already know the mugen clutch is sweet , so Im ready to give it a try. And ill do my darndest to find the solution or solutions myself for this issue. Im pretty good at that normally. Just give me some time to get warmed up.
But beyond that , saying Im just simply hating on this car is pretty far fetched.
Not only that my first words were , hope im not stepping on anyones toes. You should know im here to help , not flame.
