I know I had my theories in past posts, but did figure that on the 3mm, you do get a bit of tweak when you're babooned by a ... baboon. Or when you drive yourself into a wall or whatever like a baboon. That's the only time I've noticed that the gear starts looking chewed. Pinion pulls away and starts grinding the tips of the spur.

To add to YBSLOW's comments... after you mount your engine on the block(s), seal up the motor and run the block (stock or mono) on a flat block w/ sand paper to remove any anodize or old LOCTITE residue and also rough sand the chassis. This will help give you a good solid lockdown when you mount the engine in the car.

Here a pic of the kawahara engine brace:
It's a decent upgrade and adds a bit of stiffness to the chassis, especially when combined with the Kawhara radio plate support upgrade. I don't use the rubber rings though. I find it doesn't really change the way the car performs but your experience may differ.

check the pinions for wear as when they get a little sharp that is one cause of stripping.
also check gear mesh too as this is critical.
oh and the hopp up brace will help too

could you guys elaborate or further explain on the pinions getting a little sharp... was thinking that when my second gear spur got stripped off, my pinions got a bit rounded rather that being a bit more sharp... although the pinions being sharper therefore causing the stripping makes more sense to me... are pinions getting sharper as they wear???

Guys,

I have a picco nsr3 turbo motor and wondering if I should get a turbo pipe for it or can I use different tune pipe non turbo? I am leaning towards getting the skyline vr12, what do you guys think

Is it matter if I get a turbo or non turbo?

As the pinions wear the shape of the teeth change. They get thinner and sharper and this can make it easier to strip spur gears.

I know when the teeth on the Mugen pinions wear they change shape and it can cause gear stripping. I have no idea if it is very easy to strip gears on the Kyosho. Why don't you tell me. You are the expert on everything.

sorry about that,
yes, as the teeth wear down they get thinner until there is no flat spot left on the edge, thus "getting sharp"
when you're ready to fit new pinions and spurs, i can highly recomend the steel pinions.
after fitting my first set, after 200 minutes of running they still look like new.
very good wearing gears

Underneath both ends of the chassis brace. On the top the screw holes are beveled out to allow a flathead screw to hold the brace to the car.
