If you put the 2nd gear pinion on by hand as tight as you can, then you can use that pinion and hold with pliers that have large teeth, and tighten the other pinion down with another set of pliers. I do this all the time, I have not bought any special tools. Just take your time, use your brain and you will figure it out.

any ideas? maybe use thread lock on pinion gears???

thanks
Don't use thread lock or you will never get them off if you need to. It looks new, once you run the car it will tighten up as it drives the car on its own. You just need them to be snug on the clutch bell.

I think you mean the APP brake pads(APP02-2), right? I'm using it with the original MTX-4 brake disc, work perfectly. You needed some extra work to drill one hole longer and fits two screw. I also test Mugen yellow pads with Mugen options disc, APP get more sensitive to me. will post photo tomorrow.

i just cant get the gear to mesh properly, wen i take of the first pinion gear, the 2nd pinion mesh is perfect
but wen i put the first pinion back on, the gears are very very tight
i fink thats due to the fact that the first pinion gear is not put on tight enuff

First thing is, did you put the brace in before you do the mesh? Must put the brace in first.

If it becomes tight later is because due to bearing slop on 2 speed housing. There will always be slop and they don't rotate true. You will need to add more gap in for it to spin free. Is an experience thing, after you strip a few you will learn how to mesh them correctly!

I have been trying something new that will get the perfect mesh each time. Which is to use spur that are 2 tooth bigger. Set the mesh to be tight and then change the spur back to a smaller one. Same gap everytime.

readjust the mesh first by angle, by looking from both bottom and top of the chassis, they shoulb be parallel, then look at the full contact side by side, there should be full contact with the centax on and off, and finally if not enought contact, you chould consider using a shim behind the collect, no need to mugen tool, it just makes it easier, an strong allen wrench throught the 2 holes in the bell grabbed by a press or by wide pliers should do it, just be careful with the teeth.
happy racing

As far as I know the spurs are the same size no matter how many teeth they have. They just change the size of the teeth but not the diameter of the gear itself. This is the same for the pinions.

I dont think you are correct, that would totally throw off the pitch of the gears.
