This can definitely be a problem if you haven't done it before.

First, take your time and turn very slowly. Once you have some bite, make sure it's straight before continuing, as that's where most of the problems start. Once it's in straight, turn 1/8th to 1/4th turn at a time and check to make sure it's still straight each time - if not, back it out and try again. If it's good, continue going until it's fully seated. When you turn - and I know this sounds somewhat difficult to do, try to make sure that the allen wrench (assuming you're using the kit one) is perpendicular and that you're not angling it some how - which can also cause it to go in crooked.

It may take some practice before you can do it without stripping the plastic, but keep at it. Try the back ones first, as the left and right one are interchangeable if you strip one and have to buy another set. The fronts are not interchangeable.

Hope this helps.

Although i have made the servo horn 18mm as the manual states, it hits the fuel tank. I realise there is a short throw on the steering but is this the way its supposed to be? requiring adjustment of your transmitter to avoid binding?

You should not have a problem once it's mounted in the car and you've adjusted the steering throw. If you do, let us know.

I recommend drill the top of horn.. (let properly space for ball link) in RRR manual says to take a little of material off I'm not sure on Evo.. You can also screw the fuel tank more to the rear (it can help a little) the final adjustment is done with everything read to go. In the back of Setup-Sheet you will find how to set neutral and 100% turn left right looking to top of servo saver ball link screw and radio plate

It's helpful to have the right tool. I find it much easier if I use my Hudy 4mm (or whatever size it is) driver or glow plug "T" wrench. The cap will only go on the wrench so far and then it will sit flat. Then I can push it while turning and it goes on much easier. Does this make sense?

That does make sense. I'll try it. Thanks

There's 2 screws. Back them each out slightly for earlier engagement and tighten them for later engagement. I can't find a picture right now but there's 3 screws if I remember. the 2 outer ones control the shift point.

What you could try is holding the car from the roll bar and press the throttle gently and you should feel the car shift. It will have a bump and the front of the car will noticably want to pull up.

Sometimes I never hear it shift when I plant the throttle down. I have to roll the throttle gently to hear it.

I had the same problem and I got some help at the track were I race and I was shown how to adjust the 2 speed it is very easy, screw in both screws all the way down then unscrew about 3 and half to 4 turns this should to the trick depending on how fast or slow you want it to shift, hope this helps.

I'm having trouble with my clutch now. I had someone install the engine for me and the clutch was fine, but now after I took it apart and cleaned it I'm having trouble. Basically I have to rev the engine really high before it will engage which is bad and impossible to drive. I'm also not exactly sure how to adjust it. Is there a guide somewhere with a picture of what I adjust the spring tension with?

This is the clutch spring tension tool i use...... makes adjusting the spring tension very easy....as for the engine revving really high before it engages sound to me that the spring is adjusted to tight.....
