If so then it's still rich and hence would not be revving up enough to engage the 2nd speed.

Continue with the runnin in process and after tuning close to optimum performance then you should see the 2nd speed kick in.

This engine was in my Kyosho V-One-RR Evo before i saw the light and converted to the snake. However I have taken the gearbox apart since my original post on this subject and checked to make sure i set it as per the instructions. I was slightly out but not by much, perhaps under load it will change, although load will make no change to the centrifigul forces that make the clutch operate.

OK, and yes, that was what I was going to ask you to look at next. Too often I've seen people trying to listen to the shift by holdng the car up in the air. You need to do both, in the air a couple of times just to make sure it is shifting and then place it on the track and adjust from there.

I just have to paint and mount the wing. After that I will post pics.

This paintjob looks SO awesome... one of the better one's I've done.
That's torture, Glenn where's the pics I don't mind without wing

I have not tried not greasing the balls. I have seen what happens when one does not grease the balls. The balls get gritty and even AFTER rebuilding the diff using the same balls, the diff still remains gritty. My guess is that the balls have already got flat spots that cannot be even out. If you grease the balls when new, they stay smooth for very long.

Greasing the balls with normal grease also does not cut it. You need sticky grease so that the grease will not fly off when they spin. My personal opinion and experience.

Master Glenn Cauley has a great article about rebuilding the diff - in his instructions, he suggests using Mugen Super Grease. I followed his instructions and am very happy

Just need to figure out how to setup the iSight camera to record video and then pray that no one else is at the track - probably do it on Monday
