. . . but I'm going to guess that the grub screws in the two-speed are screwed too far in.

If your engine has run out of compression - join the club!
Yes the NS-5 stuff will fit, but it's likely uneconomical.
thnx for that guys!~ i've checked each part individiually and have narrowed it down to the rear. checked the grub screws (they're fine. thnx taylor ) it's not really binding now... something close though... it rolls freely until a certain point in the revolution, it binds abit... and then it's fine... it always binds there though =( i've checked and changed the bearing inside the rear axials. wheels arn't warped... maybe diff? checked to see for leaks but no leaks..


oh btw taylor, uneconomical as in better off buying a new one? From RC-Mushroom, you can get the NS5 P/S/C and crank for $92USD... which equates to about $160AUS shipped... what do you think? or am i better off buying a new engine? I'm hunting another OFNA 7 port .12 still crying over my loss

keep you guys posted =)

10 bucks its a small pebble in the rear diff pully, or the pully on the 2spd shaft. Or a build up of grime on same.

Or................................................ ...... the diff has gone bad, ak broken bevel gear..... your problems sounds like the same one I had this summer and it turned out to be the gears in the diff had given up the ghost. pull the diff out and tun it by hand and see if you have any spots that feel to tight.

Question.....



Where is a good place to get spare parts for the EVO car? I have noticed that Tower has some of them, but most of them are backordered until Late Jan.

That is the only major supplier here in the states, most of the RR parts do fit since most of the change was done in the front

The NS5 P/S/C is US$100 at RC-Mushroom.
The NS5 crank doesn't seem to be listed but I would expect roughly US$60.
Add a couple of bearings and it may be worth it, I guess.

Question to Manticore

Manticore

I have read on some old post that you have fitted a MTX Centax clutch to your v1, I am doing the same mod now using Mugen 1st & 2nd {19T,16T on order} for more low end. Did you use Kyosho or Mugen gears?
As I have been told Mugen will not work! I did look for your pics but could not find them.
Any other info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I use kyosho pinions on the mugen clutch. I am talking about 1.0 module which is what you are referring to. the mugen pinions are of smaller diameter and you will have gear mess problem on the kyosho car.

Any advice is appreciated.

Just a quick question. How do you know it is running out of compression?

Turn your engine over by hand... When my engine was at it's prime running stage it was very hard to turn over but now, it feels alot easier...

I don't have the engine compression gauage but just by feeling it while turning the engine over will give you an indication of the compression.

BTW, found the culprit... a bit 2spd shaft >_< just slightly, but enough to cause binding. thnx for the help guys, i only discovered it while looking for a stone in the brake pulley like you guys suggested
