Default Rebuilding question

Hey Guys/Gals,

I am looking to rebuild the my car for the upcoming year. I am going to ditch the current chassis for a 4mm and add some new bearing all around. Any other suggestions to get the car ready?

I would also consider changing the front and rear bulkheads since your gonna rebuild. This will make your car feel a little more tighter just because the whole suspension/differential assembly is attached to the bulkheads. I usually change out my bulkheads at least 3 times per year if im racing 2-3 times per month. Hope this helps.

This is my first Mugen/on road kit so just bear with me here. So I just finished installing the engine and all of the gears and everything look fine but I have one question--let me try and explain.

Ok--so the car is sitting flat on the ground and I push it forward, while pushing forward I can hold the spur gears still with my thumb and the car still rolls.

If I roll the car backwards I cannot hold the spur gears still without stopping the car.

Does this sound right? I am positive that I put everything together the right way so I just want to make sure I am doing everything right.

Here is a video that I just did demonstrating what I am talking about. Sorry for the bad lighting but you can see that I can hold the spur gears still and still move the car forward.




Thanks for any help...

It's normal due to the "one way" bearing in the first gear housing.
