EDIT: Kyosho answered my question, you have to make sure the beveled side goes towards the first gear and the flatter side to the clutch bell, which I didn't do. Works perfectly now
hello I'm new here. I am still confused or stuck on shimming the clutch bell. I get it that your suppose to put one after the clutch nut so the bell doesn't bind with flywheel. The next step where I'm confused when that the instruction manual says to use 5x7 shim between the bearing and the black collar. Now I bought myself the igw008 set and the manual says to use 3x5 shim the end of crankshaft so it won't lock up. I would like to know if ya can help me understand what its for and what should I be following since 2 different manual tells different things. 5x7 or 3x5 shims?

Default Engine tune leans out as fuel is depleted. How can I solve this?

Hello,


I've got two separate GT2's running right now... One with the 150ml tank, and the other with the 125ml tank.


When I run either of them, I notice the tune will lean itself as the fuel is depleted... I am assuming this is because the pressure in the tank is decreasing as more air enters.
  • It starts off rich and increases in power to around 1/2 tank.... at this point the power is great, I can see decent smoke, and everything sounds good.
  • It then it becomes leaner as I get closer to the end of the tank.... At this point, the power is OK, the visible smoke is diminishing, and my idle tune is off after WOT straight pulls.


As a result of this, I end up bringing the car in to refuel around the 1/2 tank mark to avoid overheating.


Also, this issue seems to be consistent among any the engines I've run..
  • Kyosho GXR .28,
  • TrackStar SEG .21
  • NOVA .28 7T


How do good/pro racers tune for the full life of a tank so they get max performance without blowing up their engines?
  • Is there a way to solve for this pressure variation?
  • Is this due to the way I have my fuel tank & fuel lines set up?
  • Or, is this just a part of nitro tuning?


If possible, please advise.


Thank you

Default GT3 Caster blocks

Hello

I have planned to do the same update as you MikaR but right now I am waiting for the caster blocks to arrive in the mail, MikaR you write that you use screws and balls from mp9, can you please explain which ones you use? preferably with article number if you remember.

Thanks in advance // Johan

That's completely normal, it happens to all Nitro engines. The only thing you can do is tune the engine when it leans out, but then it will be rich until it hits that original lean out spot, so it's a trade off.


On a separate note, I want to replace the plastics shocks that came with my Nitro GT2 AMG with Aluminum ones. What Kyosho Shocks fit the GT2?

As usual I'm pretty late to the party. Figured I'd dust off this once active thread. I picked up a Demon body gt2 rs from the LHS couple of weeks ago as my springtime car. Removed the rtr radio and servos and put my own in. Got the sway bars and a set of shocks on the way from Kyosho. Nice thread with lots of searchable info. Nobody really runs these things around me so Ill be poking around looking for any setups tips and tricks.

To prevent lean run use fuel with more oil lube. 14-18% and open the high needle more at half tank and check the temperature and near empty. Temp should be consistent at half and near enpty.

It's all good, one of the bearings or a pin in the 2 speed shaft has broken, letting the spur gears slide forward, I had only just fitted a new engine and just finished the break in and noticed the problem and thought I'd over looked the forward to rear mesh but after looking closer and finding the spurs being able to shift forward, I now know the issue. easy fix thank fook!👍

hi mate, when installing the IGW008 tranny, what front drive shaft did you use? my original igt1 shaft to the front diff seems to long.

hi, do you know of a part number for a shorter dog bone shaft by any chance?

Hello guys, can anyone reccomend an alternative for the IGW008 1st gear (46T)? Nothing wrong with it but I'm annoyed they only sell it in pairs, and as the 1st always goes I now have a ton of spare 43T 2nds.

Perhaps the IF148 46T spur gear for the electric buggy if someone can confirm the holes are spread the same as the IGW008 1st (so it can be screwed on the one way) - I can drill the middle bit to a larger hole
