Not slugish at all. And its helped to overcome wheelspin on corner exit.

you can use pre-load set at its lowest thread with at least 60mm tires to get 5mm ride height.
last time i went with 59mm and 63mm tires front/rear respectively, and that was with a 21t pulley.

Hi guys,

I am having problem with my 2 speed transmission... For some reason, it won't shift... I tried loosen & tighten both screws but still not shifting. How many turns out do you guys recommend? I have a Sirio Evo III 3 ports in this car. Anybody has similar problem before with their 2 speed not shifting? I am not new to nitro but new to 710. Please help. Thank you.

sometimes when your two speed is too loose, it sounds like it is not shifting because it shifts as soon as you take off. i would try this first. start the car, now hold the car in your hand and get the engine warmed up a bit. now, take the throttle and give it gas while holding the car. give it gas slowly. now see if you can hear it shift. take the rpm's up high, this will tell you if it is too tight. also, you can set your shift point this way as well, then fine tune it on the track. hope this helps.

My 2 speed is a little old, and i have the problem that i need to make the screws very lose..... for a new 2speed, what the manual says is good... also read about the adjustmentscrews in the shoos itself... they change a lot of how the 2 speed gears...
