I owned this car before and only stripped one gear. Let's get the obvious out of the way first. You are using new spurs and pinions, right? Worn out pinions will eat away your spur gears.

Second, you need to set the mesh a little on the tight side in this car. I used to set it so the mesh between pinions and spurs was barely free. I would say theeth were engaged about 90%. This is almost no play at all. The teeth will brake in a little after a few spins.

You have to be careful not to mount the engine diagonally, also check your 1st gear one-way. One friend of mine started stripping gears and only stopped once he changed his one way. This could very well be your problem as you state you did not see this happen before and such parts are subject to wear. How about your 2-speed shaft? It could be a little worn out, too.

I hope that helps.

Kane, just change the 2speed gear housing first. I striped my every 4 mins at the World Champ Brendale and that was brand new car too. I asked the MTX4 designer and he said change 2 speed housing first.

Check the gap between the 2speed bell and the 2speed clutch. You have to keep adjusting the shoes so there is only a poofteenth of a gap. Any more than half a mm and the shoes hit the bell with alot more force. You want it as close as you can get it without rubbing, then your shifts are nice and smooth and not putting too much shock loading on the teeth.

I reset mine after every race day and have only ever stripped one gear. And that only stripped because I got the car airborn over a ripple strip and kept it nailed. The shock loading on the transmision on landing stripped it.

Hi,
I am curious to know the thickness and the material of Kawahara's.
Thanks!
