Default gears grinding when i roll chassis in reverse

i've got an original 960 that i'm finally getting up and running. when i try to simply roll the chassis in reverse, it is not smooth and i get gear crunching. the weird thing is that it doesn't do it when i roll it forward. i removed the engine w/ clutch from the chassis and the drivetrain is smooth as silk in forward and reverse. if i spin the pinions on the clutch and engine by hand, it is also smooth. i have discovered that when the engine and clutch is installed, they do not line up perfectly with the 1st and 2nd speed spur gears. the axis of the engine shaft is not perpendicular to the chassis length. no amount of finagling would allow me to properly set the gears to mesh correctly. has there been any issues like this? is it known that the engine mounts and/or engine flanges must be ground in order to achieve proper pinion/spur mesh? or do i have another problem altogether with this gear crunching. sorry if this has already been tackled on this thread.

thx

What engine do you have?
If you use the engine monoblock, it might be possible that at the front of this monoblock (under the engine), you need to grind some material away which might touch the engines crank case.
With Mega engines it is not a problem, With Picco EVO2 also not, but with Picco EVO3 I also had to take some material away. Novarossi also have "big" crankcases.
If you don't, the engine is not good aligned with the spur gears....

Default BSR Wheels tight fit

Hi guys,
This fall I bought a used 960 roller of a e-bay. Since then I have been acquiring parts to build it up. I bought a set of NIB BSR tires and they won't fit on the axles. The BSR part numbers are F8130 "1/8TH 30 REAR - SERPENT" and F8035 "1/8TH 35 FRONT - SERPENT". These are not just a little tight but shave a thin layer of plastic off tight if you try to push them on. The OD of the axle measures 0.4775 inch = 12.1 mm.

Also the front axles do not have a quick release they have a hollow carriage bolt instead. Fixed wheel kit w/cv.

In the manual the steering blocks appear to have molded in ribs. Mine don't they are smooth. Tried to get a picture but that mat black finish didn't show any detail. Looking around the serpent site they may be wide offset steering blocks pn 903233.

Its definitely a Serpent car but how car I tell if it is really a 960 vs a 950 or..?

Thanks Lee_123

The 960 can be built to take Serpent style wheels (0S1) or Mugen/Kyosho style (0S2). Early kits came with the parts to do it either way. On later kits it came as OS1 and you could buy the OS2 parts to do the conversion. You need to determine if you have an OS1 or OS2 car. NOTE the wheels fit tightly on the axles and in the case of the rear it is not unusual to have to push hard to get the QC latch to engage.

The 950 has a bulkhead directly behind (pn902223) the front bulkhead that the pivot pins go into. The 960 does not have this.

I can help you with 903233.

Lee
