Mike Swauger.. Do you have your Las Vegas Silverbowl setup for the 'R' posted anywhere I can retrieve it?

Thanks,
Bill

Default How to fix the first gear from slipping

I was wondering if I need to replace the 1st gear oneway or can it be fixed. I'm pretty new to onroad, and any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Scott

Are you ripping the teeth off of the 1st spur gear, or the one way housing will actually spin on the adapter?

Default one way

I cleaned the inside of the oneway and it worked great for about 5 minutes. accasionally it would not engage and overrev. It doesn't always slip but it does about 5 percent of the time.

This part has only about 1/4 gallon on it.

I would just replace it, You would not want to ruin the run you are on because of slippage

Thanks for the information. Is this common for the oneway bearings to wear out this quick?

There are two schools of thought here. A lot of people run the one way's both in the front one way as well as the first gear housing out of the package and preform no maintenance what so ever until there is a problem. When a problem arises the simply replace it. The other school of thought requires some effort on your part to maintain what you have paid for. Do not EVER run a one way bearing dry as debris and lack of lubrication are what ends there service life. I clean (compressed air and motor cleaner) and lube my one way after each days use. I use Serpent one-way lube (yes I know I am going to be struck by lightning, they do have a couple of really good products; one way lube and cleaning putty) when needed. Just take a look at the start of the day to see if it's dry and if so a couple of drops will do. Always check it before the main(while you have the transmission off lube the thrust bearing as well). Please keep in mind that a little goes a long way, as over lubing will also cause first and second to slip.

Hey guys I had a nasty wreck at the track this weekend and broke a few front end parts. My question is can I rebuild the car with"X" parts instead of "R" parts.

I broke the bulkhead and the shock stay. What can I expect as far as handling goes if I put the X "front end" on the car with the "R" rear?

The only difference between the MRX 4 X and the MRX 4 R bulkheads is that on the X you can raise or lower the axle height, but the front shock stay is different between the 2, 1 is narrower and the other is wider, and as far as handling of the car, it will be up to you to experiment when you combine the front of an X and the rear of an R.

Thank you for that info. That helps knowing there's only a slight change. I'm going to convert the front this weekend.

By any chance, do you have the part #'s to do the front convertion to an X.

H0148B Front Bulk Head
H0188 Eccentric Hub
H0515 Front Spring (Yellow)
H0560 Front Damper Stay
Here's the Deal; The new bulk heads give you the option to adjust the height or distance from the bottom of the chassis to the center line of the front one way or rear spool. Which ever one is lower will have more traction.
The "new front damper stay" will stand the front shocks up making them a little bit stiffer, harder etc. There by giving up some of this traction that can be gained by lowering the front one way and at the same time make the car a little more responsive.
The yellow spring is stiffer than a gray and softer than a white.
Hope this helps...
