With the Kyosho manifold too?

You have it backwards. The one way is there to let 1st gear coast when 2nd gear is engaged.
I knew it was one of them

You will need the 29t if the tyres get down to 61mm. I was having trouble keeping up on Sunday until I changed the top gear

Cheers

Default Pinion gears

Hi,

Where are you purchasing the Mugen 28T and 29T pinions from? I cannot find anywhere local that sells them (nor on rcmart, rc-union, and rcsquare).

Also, will the Mugen gears fit on the Kyosho centax end-bell?

Thanks,
-Rich

I recently made the switch from the RD Logics pipe to the Kyosho pipe and mani. and what a big difference. I noticed I picked up a lot more mid range and top end. I wish I would have tried this earlier.

You need the Mugen clutch bell and the 28 and 29t 2nd gear. The 22t first gear fits and is a better mesh than the mugen one

I got mine from RC online
