People,

Do the Kfactory spur gears fit onto the orginal bell housing and how do they compare to the stock gears? I am finding the stock gears are very soft and don't take much to get too a point of needing replacement.

Hey guys, i was getting my ntc3 for this weekend and i found that when the car hits 2nd gear then goes back down to first the engine revs real high with no load. would it be the primary clutch not re-engaging? sorry but i dont run nitro onroad much so im having a tough time figuring this out.

Make sure the 2 shoe clutch is clean and doesnt have any oil residue in it. That could be causing it not slip.

It almost sounds like the one-way bearing in your two-speed is going out. . .

Shouldn't it be "K factory pinion gears" instead of spur gears? Anyway, I thought K Factory ones are for their Centax clutchbell?

Try the GH (Golden Horizon) pinions if you can find them. They are much harder. 7076 aluminum if I'm not mistaken.

The K pinions will fit the Ae clutchbells, I use them, they last much longer.
I've had 2 oneway brgs. go out on me in 2 years and both times my car would'nt even move, in first or second gear.

I am after new ends for my shocks, I have RPM ball ends but I cant find replacments for the shocks. My originals are just about RS & I would like to get some sexy blue ones. By the ends I mean at the bottom not the cap. Any help would be appreciated. BTW I got an RB C12 to fit in my BMI Chassis, it kicks A$$. 5th place at the NSW ROORDA Titles. I popped a rod 25 mins into the main costing 1st place. Oh well maybe next year.

hooked on,
i think you're pertaining to the k factory pinion gears, they don't have the spur gears after market parts yet. i'm currently using it now and it fits perfectly fine. the material used is much harder and would last longer than the stock ones. go ahead and you will not regret.

Default Steering problems

Does anyone else have this problem? Sometimes after I turn right, and go back to center, the car will veer right. Same thing for the left, it will veer left. Doesn't always do it. You can actually see the wheels do not center. I use top of the line speed servos, which I put in my mrx3 and never have this problem. I just accepted it like this for so long, but is there something I am missing? I do not see a bind. I think I have the servo saver spring pretty tight too.
Tks in advance

Oh yeah, pretty quite here since Harry has gone HPI again.

Chuck, do you have the steering bushings or do you actually have the bearings?
If it is the original bushings, you may consider changing them to the steering bearings.
I have not had that problem and I do use digi servos.

The only other thing for you to check are the lower pivot balls on the front to see if they are still straight and your shock lengths. That is all that I could think of at the moment. Good luck. Let me know what you find.

Gp,
nice shaft!! Does it really help the rpm's?
