Default Proper Gear Mesh?

I was wondering if I put this on correctly. Don't want to be stripping more gears.



I've tried the paper trick but I always am getting a nice crinkle.

Looks pretty spot on too me.

You want it nice and tight but loose enough as too spin freely and not bind.
Make sure both gears are meshed equally.

If its a MTX-4 open the gap in the 2 speed clutch so there is minimal gap.

Good luck

It's actually for an MTX-3. So should I open up the gap a bit?

I never stripped any gears on my mtx-3.
But yes reduce the gap so it doesnt engage real hard.

As i said before I adjust my mesh by feel as stated in previous post.

Not too loose, not too tight!!

Wait, isn't it if I reduce the gap, I'm making it tighter? Then it'll be to tight. So shouldn't I make the gap a tad bit bigger, but not too big.
