Default Gear Mesh on TC3....

How do I adjust the gear mesh (pinion and spur) on the TC3? It doesn't look like there is anyway to adjust it horizontally. Is the only adjustment the springed screw to move the motor clamp onto the bulkhead (vertical adjustment)?

Loosen the screw over the spring, then move your motor until you get a mesh you like, then retighten the screw

To be a little more specific.

Place the motor in the slot, put the top brace over it and screw in the inside screw (not all the way, just so it grabs the nut a little). If you turn the motot towards the inside of the chassis you will notice that the motor moves horizontaly. There you go.

In real simple terms: you adjust the mesh by ROTATING the motor either toward the spur gear or away from it. Then tighten the screws to hold the motor in place.
