Thanx Harry... sounds great, that way if it moves to the front it stops and when I accelerate the spring will move the brake linkage to the back... I hope I understood well...

KLANDER,

It seems I have all of that. Or most of it. I'm about to go through the car and figure it out. I bought it from a local guy Wangcc1. It's got a doubled up rear graphite shock tower.

I got an OS header that is U shaped. I'm hoping it will work. It depends if the exhaust port on the engine is high enough to clear the rear. My engine will hopefully get here by the end of this week, or early next.

The R-40 is designed for rear exhaust only, if you can get that header on send me a picture ok...

Well I'm on my way to the POBox to get mi tires and the LW 2 speed tranny only... the chassis and the flange bearings until tomorrow because they are still in customs... oh well...
Can somebody tell how to set up the clutch on the LW 2 speed?
I'm afraid I'll break something...

If you get that, it will probably work, but I'd just get a RE motor.
Klander I carefully tighten the screws as said in the manual. The rest was done after running the car around a bit.

Those included screws on the LW Tranny are weak they strip do easily.

How'd you do that? I never stripped mine. They are strong.
