This is a common problem with the 2-speed. Use some Mugen Sticky grease on the 2-speed clutch level. Many people have different opinions....

yep, this could be the reason too. but this wont slow down the car but just dont shift to 2nd gear. What I did to fix the lever problem is to round the sharp edge on the lever.

Where have you been champ?

Default My Mugen

Hi Guys!

Thanks for all the help with the car. I learned alot from this board. Here is a picture of my MTX-2. You can't see it from this pic, but it's all Kawahara, with the exception of the front shock tower (Penguin) . It's got the 34T Overdrive Pully in the Front One Way, and the Solid Rear Diff. Anyone have a good setup? I am running Zac Project Foams 26mm fronts and 32mm rears.

Thanks!
Angel

Default Shock tower

Manticore,

Thanks for the setup. Man, that's a great idea!! Looks cool too! I will do that tonight. I guess you don't move your front shocks around much, do you?

Thanks again!
