Unhappy Slayer shifting problems.

Hey guys I have an issue with my Slayer. When It shifts to second gear it does not disengage after throttle release. Has anyone else had this problem and solved it or does anyone have an idea on how to solve it? For now I have tightened the spring to the max to keep it from going to second gear at all.
Any help would be appreciated. I am new to multiple gear transmissions in R/C so I am lost at this point.

What do you mean by "it does not disengage after throttle release?" Do you have to completely stop before it'll go back into 1st? Or does the transmission not allow freewheeling?

The transmission does not free wheel and you have to completely stop before it disengages.

Wow no one has an answer or even an idea? Not an issue probably going to pull the shoe from the tranny and change the spur gear ratio in effect eliminating second gear all together. not really functional on the track anyways. Thanks for your attempt rccardude.

Sounds to me like the shifting mechanism is not releasing or the finger is getting stuck. Either way, you need to tear it apart and take a look. Once you have the shifter in your hand, you can operate the finger and figure out why is won't go back into place. It may need a little lube or just may have a metal bur on it. It's something simple as the tranny isn't much to begin with.

Good luck.

I have already disassembled it and played with the finger. With the spring ball and setscrew removed it falls in and out real easy. no burs or scratches on it.

Yeah its a simple tranny that is why this is driving me nuts cuz it should be something stupid simple that jumps out and grabs you but it does not. I have had it apart four times now and been through numerous adjustments each time trying to see if the shift point is wrong. May just be a faulty shift mechanism. Not sure but I am installing the center diff this week with the rear brake kit so I think just eliminating it and going to a spir gear with 1 or 2 less teeth will work fine for me on the track.

Thanks for the help greg!
