Leadfoot, Thanks it was fun!! All racin should be like that. I used tread lock on my stock screw that came with the 2 speed and actually broke it off, same with the other two screws. I drilled from the inside of the clutch drum,countersunk the hole, put and nut a bolt of the correct size(don't remember what size) on. I do not have that problem anymore.

Larry, screw probably broke off for the reason I mentioned earlier. The screw head hits the outter gear assemebly. I figure I better get this info as my day could be coming......... You know Murphy's law LOL What you are saying is that you have the countersunk screw in the clutch area and the nut against the gear?? Correct.
Great last name dude, John Murphy

i was thinking about going to a lighter front diff to allow more turning. Will this work and why??
Cartman:
I read through some of my data last night. On the Xray they mention the folowing:
You want the rear diff tight enough not to slip.
Run the rear diff tighter to promote better turn in and steering.
Front diff tighter promotes better inital steering, but unstability and oversteer.

Default Kawahara 2-speed

Larry, RC nitro,

I just received my Kawahara 2 speed yesterday and after reading your comments about the screws, I looked at that closely.
I have two questions:

1.) Have you guys ony used the one screw supplied with the clutch, or have you used all three possible holes?

2.) Larry, how the heck did you get this hole countersunk so close to the clutchbell? Special tool? My countersink would never fit in there.

I was just thinking of using 3 screws with thread lock instead of the one in the kit.

Let me know please.

Thx,

Stefan

I just used the one hole with the supplied screw. I had to cut about 1mm off the end so that it would not rub the clutches inide. I just locktite the screw and placed the opening for the C -clip at the screw, and I haven't had any problems with it for 2 months. I keep check on it because it didn't seem very sturdy to me either and I was worried that my Richie RTU might rip it apart, but so far no problems.

tekrsq, that was my same concern. In one day I stripped out and broke all three screws in the clutch. That is why I now have a bolt and nut holding everything together. I am thinking about taking the snap ring off and doing the same thing to the other two holes. Don't think I will need that snap ring after that. Stefan, a drill and a dremel and you can do anything!!!! First I used a larger drill bit (about the size of the screw head). Then that handy little dremel. Used the grinding wheel that is long with a round tip, perfect for finishing the countersink. The wall we are drilling is very thick, (don't know the measurements) so there is enough material to do the countersink without weakening the clutch drum. There is enough space between the ends of the snap ring to put a nut and bolt on. If you want to use all three holes just remove the snap ring.

could someone tell me the "standard" setting for the carb. on the MT12. (high and low, turns?) i lost my spec sheet in a recent move.

also.....i bought this car used from a guy that only ran it once and needed some money (great deal for me.) but i think the 2 speed was assembled wrong, because i can find the screw to adjust the clutch. i think the car is starting off in 2nd, cuz it is pretty sluggish off the line and it doesn't shift. im an electric guy so bear with me. i really want to learn as much as possible about this car, but i'm getting frustrated. thank you in advance for your help, that is if you can help.
