haven't had that problem, either. I only put it backward once when building the car. MY FRIEND found that out because he couldn't adjust the 2-speed. Had to take it out and put it the correct way, no problem since.

I think I know what you meant now. Your 2-speed shoe did not retract back, thereby, they lock the whole housing.

Yes, I have seen that on other MTX-3 cars.

Check the bearing balls, make sure they're adjusted properly.

Get well soon, nizee. Hope you feel better in a jiffy!

Uhm.... probably went far those high temp days, probably went up to 3 or 3 1/4 turns in the low end, haven't checked, but will do for you, high end screw was about your adjustment, will check too.
