Thanks for the picture, Casper. I'll probably take a similar approach with my next body, whichever I go with. I cut out everything on the JC one I have now and the rear fenders ripped apart waaaay too quickly.

Check out http://www.tqrcracing.com

They carry Top, Spec-R, etc., all of whom make very nice parts for a lot of popular brands. You can definitely find a lot of different washers, and shipping is FAST.

I should be at OCRC on Wed for the series race and this weekend I am going up to Exeter hobbies for the Summer Nationals. Sunday is Father's Day.
Right on, good luck at Exeter! And Happy Fathers Day!

Thanks Casper, now to go order one from LHS.... and prepare a new paint scheme

Hi all new to the board. I pick a 22SCT RTC up for my son back in May. He is 8 and tearing up the track in sportman class. I am not new to the hobby, but it has been 20 years or so. I just picked up a TEN-SCTE 2.0 so not to compete with my son. This board has been very informative. I have already made mods to the 22sct rtc that has made improvement to my sons driving and run ability on the home club track. Great thread.

Stripped my Idler gear last night at the track.Replaced it and the shaft today and it seems to be in a bind.Any ideas on what may cause this?I also check the bearings in the Idler gear and they seem to be good.

It is bound up without the tranny together.With only the shaft and idler gear in it is still tight.

I have seen this on a few cars now and the top shaft has that small red alloy spacer. Replaceing that has fixed it each time. Not sure if it will fix your issue but worth a try

Add a dab of black grease to the new idler gear, if it's the newer aluminum one.

I had all kinds of trouble with transmission binding. In the end, it turned out to be a bad layshaft bearing (the one on the half of the case that comes off). It seemed fine, but once the shaft was putting pressure on it, it would bind up. But.. my layshaft was also a little bent, and tightening the transmission case screws too much would bind it even more. So, several components were at play. I would take it one step at a time, start with fresh bearings, make sure the shaft isn't bent, and then carefully tighten the case, checking for binding every quarter turn.

I got a nice size tube (on the smaller side) at Pep Boys auto parts for a few bucks. Works nice.
