so a friend of mine was stripping lots of spurs, nothing seemed to worked, so i checked his car and suggested to remesh the gear every often, and adjust them closer, he was surprised to see how close i suggested him , i explained to him that the spurs will adjust after a run and that was it, not a single spur on 3 days of racing for him! btw his chasis ! so basically there are some guys that are lucky to not have issues! and as i said before this kit is for no beginners and requires lots of details to work perfectly, but once is sorted ouT! its as fast as any current top of the line kits! with mugen quality of course!

good luck racing!

Stripping spurs is something every brand has. i`ve stripped 4 spurs in half an hour before i knew what did it. replaced the clutch bearings first, just a little play noticable.Then the 2e gear bearing, just a little play also. Then i glued the bearings from the gearbox in the upright. The bearings were a little loose but it was enough to strip 2e spur with power. (car was a NT1 by the way 2009 version). Gear mesh is with a piece of paper between the spurs en clutchpinion.

I have never ever stripped any gear that wasn't already worn out in our Capricorns and Kyoshos we used to race; unless there was something else wrong with the car that caused it. I must however admit that we've had issues with with two other brands of cars. But then again it might have been lack of experience that caused it in the two other brands.

Inherent problems with any car; and the manufacturer's response to emerging problems, are usually well documented on public forums like this one however. Mugen has identified the problems with stripped spurs to the use of hard belts, so using soft belt will obviously prevent gear stripping.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

is that right it is as easy as using the right bra to big to small or not flexible// rubber enough i wish it was that easy but if mugen said that's the problem than they had better tell the people that use rubber belts what to do now

The belts? Sounds good, but the mesh and alignment has done it for me. By the way, I've been running the same stock belts all summer without a sign of fatigue . I really like this car. I'm glad I switched

same here, urethan all the way, gear meshing and checking every once in a while does the trick! but i must say play on the 2 speed shaft at 0.1mm, almost no space between the 2 speed shoe and the housing, plus some other tips!

good luck

I have a question about the 2 speed shaft play. Does the play in your Mugens increase after one or two days of practise?

I actually have my shim between the first and second gear , not at the other side. Like this i have had zero problems, except chassis bending due to the type of starter box

for sure, as the sparcer on the side puelley is plastic, i now use a 0.2mm shim to obtain a .1mm play on the shaft!

beware youll have to use shims before the cone so to obtain a perfect alingment on the pinions vs spurs, i use a 0.5mm thick shim and i also do the centax gap with 5x7 shims between the outer bearing and the thrust bearing so the edge of the 1st pinions never touches the thrust bearing collar!
