If you have the two screws wound up to tight the two shoes wont be able to seperate there for no second gear. Loosen them just enough so you can just pull the shoes apart by hand, THIS IS YOUR STARTING POINT. Now drive the car and see when 2nd kicks in. If it kicks in to early tighten the screws one hour so it needs more rpm to open it up, or if it kicks in to late loosen them a little so it needs less rpm to open. It's all about driving it and setting where you want it. I hope this helps you.

The TS4N was my first rc car and it was great to learn on. I have some carbon fibre shock towers if you want them they are yours for $20 (good condition) They are in the sale/trade thread aswell.

With the TS4N the 2 speed is a leaver system unlike the newer racers which have a 2 shoe design.
Check to see if you have installed the 2 speed mechanism back to front as from memory, the leaver on your 2 speed needs to be trailing the direction that the 2 speed unit spins.
It is possible that you have installed it around the wrong way & while the car will run fine, it wont shift into second gear.
After checking this and getting it all together again, its just a matter of setting the adjustment screw where you want it to engage in the rev range.
If you have installed it the wrong way around, dont stress as it is very easy to do and has been done before!
Hope this helps you out.
