the allen screw in the tranny adjusts when the truck will shift into 2nd gear. if i remember right the more you screw it in the later the shift and the more you unscrew it the earlier the shift. i would read the directions and set it back to stock settings and adjust from there. i used to have a tmaxx years ago and after i found the sweet spot for the shifting i would then scren it all the way in but count the turns then take out the allen screw and put some blue locktite on it and scew it back in counting the turns so i get it back to the sweet spot. i did this because the allen screw was moving on me a little at a time then the shifting would be oof. hope this helps.
