I would imagine its for more sidebite! I only made them cause Dj apolaro seems to use them on his setups, n rightnow his La setup is on my car ni love it, minus the 1hole piston......

So i installed my motor with clutch and two speed all box stock and was trying to set the gear mesh.

The outer gear mesh is very tight and the inner gear mesh has a lot of slop. Looking at the motor mount screws under the chassis the motor is correctly squared up, meaning the motor is 90 degree perpendicular to two speed. In order to have a good mesh for both 1st & 2nd gear I would have to mount the motor at a slight angle. Whats up?

A slight angle is ok/normal for us. We use 14/19 pinions and 53/48.

See the link below, which gives you better idea how others did to theirs.

- the shock is more angled so softer damping and spring,
- the travel on the shock rod is more with the same bumps because it is further on the arm,
- the shocks are a fraction higher mounted so higher rc,
- more weight unsprung

Is there a limit where the shocks should be angled down???

Its a setup thing. Getting the most out of damping. To me the angle should be
90 deg to the travel. But angling the shocks more will get you progressive travel on the shock more or less wich can be benificial to the specific situation. The car will have initial soft damping wich by compressing will alter the angle on upward arm travel and will get more travel into the shock at a higher speed wich generates more (harder) damping. Hope it all makes sence to you usin one oil rate to get soft and hard damping when you want it when the weight is transferred to where you need it on the wheel.

The 8 scale have the most angled shocks and electric tc the least. Because it works, why i don`t know besides what i said/wrote.

It depends on which gears you're using. It's only possible to align the gears perfectly straight when the total amount of teeth are the same for both gearsets.
So for example a 52/15 and 47/20 gearing adds up to a total of 67 teeth on both gearsets. This allows you to align the gears perfectly straight. When both gearsets don't have the same amount of total teeth it's impossible to align the gears straight. When this is the case I would recommend setting the first gear mesh the best you can. The second gear mesh is less important, since it wears a lot less.

Thanks for explaining that DS!
Just to be clear, first gear meaning the inside gear nearest engine?
