I recommend painting the screws of ID purposes. Especially as old as I, we need to, 2x more, I only have one eye!!!

@ roger999 all adjustment screw are screws. 1/8 or 1/4 turns for adjustment. It doesnt mean you can only adjust it that way. Since screws, you can adjust as minutely as nessesary, a hair if needed.

ok, thats a reason for painting them! however i think that is easier and quicker to remove the shoes for adjusting them rather than adjust them with the 2 speed mounted. But thats me.

Never a quick way of doing these adjustment.
1) engine adjustments
2) Centax Clutch engagements
3) Shifting to 2nd gear.

All adjustment of 2sp gear box depends how the car runs, Centax depends on RPM the clutch engages, not only when it engages, but the pessure it put on the clutch bell. 2nd gear depend on the track you drive on.

Like I say. Never a quick way. it does take patience to perfect, and time.

Just remember!! The HSN & LSN is like the hot & cold fauset in the kitchen. As small as the nitro engine is, It'll take less to adjust. 1/32nd, 1/64th - a hair!!! Can make a differance.

Good Luck!

i just said its easier and quicker sometimes to remove the shoes in order to adjust the shifting screws rather that doing it with the shoes attached on the car... from the little holes at bell.....Nothing more or nothing less...

i told you that you ll be happy with the performance of the zx12 ds2 If you like it,
consider the new mega ds4 or picco evo4 over O.S. They are even better from ds2 (more reliable due to new conrod), and they are cheep too.
Always remember that picco also need a picco pipe for best performance. If you can find a 2607 or
a 2651 picco pipe for your zx12 you ll have best results-the power increase is huge.

if you found the zx quick with the 2602, then you havent seen anything yet...As far as where to find mega ds4, check the serpent distributor in your country. Picco evo 4 is the same engine and you can find it into 2 versions:standard and edo modified. I know rcmushroom has both versions in very affortable prices, edo modified is at 239.99$. You cant go wrong with these engines. Very fast and reliable too.
