Default Just got a T-Maxx, got a quick question

I just got a used T-Maxx, the original version. I noticed the 2 speed that's hooked up to a servo. This is the first time I've had a 2-speed nitro. So I have a couple questions:

1. Would I be correct to assume that when the servo pulls out, that's switching to the 2nd gear?

2. How do I know when to shift? Or is all based on the feel of the truck?

Thanks guys.

That 3rd servo is hooked up to the reverse mechanism in the tranny. To go in reverse you pull the 3rd servo open. The 2 speed part of the tranny is automatic and shifts when the tranny reaches a certain RPM. You can adjust the shift point with a little screw in the tranny. The screw is under one of the rubber plugs on top of the tranny.

kcobra covered your question.

you will actually "hear" and "see" the difference when the 2nd gear kicks in. make sure you have enough open space to let the 2nd gear takes its action.
