EPA = END POINT ADJUSTMENT

Scroll thru your menu and find D/R, adjust it to be the absolute highest you can get I think 125 on the JR....
Now scroll thru the menu and look for STL and STR....... make sure you have wheels and tires on the car and prep it as if it was race ready.... Steer to the left and adjust it until the steering doesn't bind ad the wheels/tires don't hit anything, now adjust the STR to the same point (numerically on the screen) Now when you steer to the left and right they should have the same throw......

impactplayr,
thanx for the help. I will set the adjustments according to your post. I also noticed that when i turn the wheels, when it goes back to the straight position i sometimes hear a clicking noise coming from the servos. is that normal?

buggyman 81,
the engine i got from a friend for $120 and he broke it in and only ran it for one weekend. he bought another engine and sold me the mugen.

I ran it a little today and everything looks good. i couldnt get it up to speed since my street has those stupid reflector things.

thanx again for the help

let me know what you think. my two concerns are the 2 speed clutch and the fuel tubing. i hope i have it set right for the clutch and the fuel tubing to the carb i had to switch to the other side of the carb because of the ait filter.

Try to keep the fuel tube as level as possible. I wrap mine around the handle. Also, make sure you have about 10" of fuel tube from your pressure fitting on your tank to the pipe.

I wish I could enlarge this picture of my car some without distorting it but I can't. I think you can see my fuel tubing wrapped around the handle and tied off as level as possible.

i can see it a little. I do have 10" of line going into the pipe so i think i should be good on that. For the 2 speed how does it engage? Because the pinion gears on the bell move BOTH spur gears at the same time. Now i know that the 2 speed cluth will engage at a certain speed depending on how tight i tighten the screws and push the metal balls closer to the shaft or loosen the balls. But if both spur gears are spinning isnt it already enagaged? I followed the directions very close when installing and i made a couple mistakes but i corrected them while building so i'm pretty sure i have the gears on right. also for the gear mesh it says to align it so that when you hold the pinion gear you can rock the spur gears back and forth with light pressure. I am able to do this so i should be ok with the gear mesh right?

Thanx for the help.

What they're trying to tell you about the mesh is that if you hold one side of the gears and rock the other gears there should be a little play.

This can be kinda tricky to explain.....

Yourtheory would be correct, but you forgot the one-way bearings inside the clutch....

each gear gas it's own independant one-way bearing , both facing opposite directions. As the engine starts to rev-up gear ones bearing locks to the shaft and begins the acceleration process, weanwhile gear 2's one-way locks in the other direction allowing the gear to "freewheel" on the shaft not being engaged, infact that bearing never engages......

Now as the RPM's come up the 2 dspeed clutch engages gear 2 at a shaft RPM level you determine, in trn this locks gear 2 to the shaft increasing the prm's of the shaft. at this point the shaft starts spinning at higher rpm's than gear 1, so the one-way bearing disengages or unlocks and allows gear 1 to turn at lower rpm's than the shaft is turning.....

The Nitro 2 speed is quite complicated if you don't understand how the inner working parts actually do their thing, but quite simple once you understand how it works......

The nitro 2 speed would be totally mpossible if it weren't for one-way bearings......
