There is another issue that no one seemed to have addressed that I noticed with both my MTX3 and MTX4 with the 0.8 pitched gears. I noticed that I quick stripping the second gear once I made the gear split the same as the gear split on the clutch bell. So, if I am running a 4-tooth split on the clutchbell, I run the same on the spur gear and so on. However, I have noticed like everyone else that the 52-tooth second gear does seem to strip out very easily.

lots of tips.

I´ve tried with 5 and 7 teeth difference on both pinions and gears and no problems, that´s a 2 teeth apart, and used the 52 spurs and no stripping. no one in my club has stripped since finding out that the gears should be perfectly aligned and with a shim on the 2 speed pin or a bit of dremel on the brace.

any help please pm

happy racing.

As suggested, I switched back to the 53 tooth spur. I also mated my second gear pinion to the spur with no angle deviation before sliding the first gear spur on. Since then I have not had any stripping. **Looks around for some wood to knock on but finds none so knocks on head**
