It's amazing how many nooks and cranies are on this car for dirt to hide in. I felt like half the surface of the parking lot was hidden away while swapping out the chassie

Hey maintainance boy, ya missed a spot! LOL

What a crash. Sounded like the car went "WhooHEERRRUHH". I'm probably gonna be able to run my car against my friends R40 with Rody so I'll see what he got and maybe I'll use my digicam if I can bring it for a vid. However the digi only has picture. No sound

I recall someone getting some nuts machined to fit but was there any other way?

Hey guys,

What's the deal with .12 motors being more expensive than .18s? Is smaller really that much harder to manufactuer?, or are hobby shops cashing in on what the clubs use the most? Do any of your clubs see going to a .18 class?

Regg- I dunno how you only used 2 shims and the car worked better. I tried that and the car revved a bit before moving. I installed 2 silver with 2 copper shims and the car now hauls offline. Gonna run it outside in the larger parkinglot soon now.

Default ATTEN LW 2SPEED NEW OWNERS!!!!

This I noted from the start. Using the stock setup the LW 2speed on first gear wobbled a bit due to a little xtra slack. That spacer included is NOT ENOUGH! There is a small amount of space between the E clip on the 2speed side. For a simple fix, use the washer for glowplugs and install it on the shaft over the included spacer. This will eliminate that wobble. It never caused me a problem before, but now with the clutch engaging properly offline, the gears started shaving a tiny bit. Now, it's perfect!

I tried using that glow plug washer, but it was too thick, so I used another one a bit less thick and It was perfect... Still thanx HarkonneD...

don't feel bad about your chassie I had my ride height set at 7mm front and 10mm rear and still managed to scratch mine.

i'm still waiting for my lw 2speed to show up should be a few more days.

It was a blast to get this car running again after sitting for so long, engine fired up on the second try, nothing like the sound of a nitro engine firing up.
