use a very thin piece of paper to set the static 2speed clutch position.!

Of cuz! seems a quite simple mechanism, but if isn't assembled with care, paying attention to the small details, shifting is odd or simply nonexistant, is one of the main problems of the newbies to 2 speed gearboxes.

This, and of course, carb adjustments are two main nightmares of people who starts on loud and messy classes (Off-Road grashoppers have only one, carb adjustment ).

when i was still a newbie, had the motor run too rich on the carb and was so nervous, i took apart the gear box Kyosho FW-10 for 5-6 times in just one afternoon trying to figure out the problem..
but manti is 1 3/4 down on the factory setting which i believe his motor is running damn lean and fast!

Hi Guys,

Do you guys have any problem with the STOCK steering rod? My friend told me that it is kind of weak and it bends if hit something? Did you guys upgrade it? If you did, which one you recommand? Any other parts i should upgrade?

Thanks.

(I already bought the Mugen Universal and Kawahara wheel hex)
