I am getting so frustrated with stripping my second gears, it's starting to get ridiculous. I tighten the screws down so hard, but it still doesn't help. I have a perfect mesh according to everyone, but they still strip. it seems as though my last option is to try longer screws.

I've seen, and done for that matter,where people have tighten the bottom screws and forget to tighten the top screws that hold the motor to the mount.

Stripping 2nd gear? Hmmm.... Just some ideas...

Check your clutch bell and 2-speed shaft bearings. Make sure your 2-speed shaft isn't bent. Are the clutch bell gears worn at all? Have you replaced them since you got the car? How are your engine front/rear bearing?

I haven't ( touch wood ) get into stripping gears situation since 2004. Only one time with my MTX3 and I solved it once for all ever since. One of my solution was using longer screws everywhere to make rear & front bulkheads stronger and stiff.

I would check these for your case :

Remove first spur gear to see the gear mesh on the second spur gear. Are you sure you have proper gear mesh after removing the first spur gear now ? ---> 1T bigger on the 2nd pinion gear might help.

Make sure the clutchbell doesn't wobble ---> check clutchbell's bearings and thrust bearing.

It's time to replace rear bulkheads with new one.

hi guys,

can someone give me a run down on the difference between running a 25T and 26T side pulley?

what effect does it have on overall ratio? should you use 25T or 26T for long tracks?

what else does it effect?

2t = less drive to the front, therefore more taily feel. 25t = more front drive so a more planted feel. i'd go with a 26t on a long track, but it also depends ont he traction, and how you like the car to feel. 26t may give you understeer.

woops wrong way around...fixed now

26T = 1 : 1 = front and rear rotate equally

25T = 1.04 : 1 = front tires rotate 4% faster than rear.

If you're running Rubber Tyres use 26T whatever the size of track.

How does your rear end feel? Is is solid or is it loose?
you also can use 42sh in rear!

Go with 25T. So with 25T you would need smaller tires in front to have the same rollout on all tires. I use 2mm smaller tires in front with 25T.

I think 26T is for ruber tires, since they don't wear... in general the rear tires wear faster and if you end up with smaller rear tires the car goes really weird...

i had this issue also , check your bearings on your clutch bell. the small bearing was the problem for mine replaced it working perfect now.

I am pretty sure I saw this answered somewhere, but do any modifications need to be made to get a Novarossi 12-3SCT into the NT1?

I am not too keen on dremeling a $500 brand new engine

Do any after market engine mounts fix this problem?
