Looking good Kodak.
Have you shortened teh 2 speed clutch screws.If you havent Id suggest taking them out and shortening about 2mm.If you dont ,when adjusting the 2nd gear change point they sometimes go right through the shoes and touch the ally housing.

good set of verniers.... yeah 15mm was what i got, i will test it for now and see how it goes, there is a bit of variety in this part of the build, umm not sure why.

cheers

Thats correct ,one more thing dont mount your reciever on the bottom reciever tray but upside down on the upper cover.
http://teammagic.com.tw/Download/G4S...ded%20View.pdf
In the pic they show mounting the reciever to the lower piece ,I mount it to the cover above.This way if using a crystal based reciever you just remove the 2 screws and the lower piece can be removed and you have access from underneath the chassis.No stretching of wires etc.
I always had a hassle with this untill I saw how the RTR reciever was mounted.
Hope you guys understand.

Spoken to Team Magic "Edith" they are over the moon in the design i have created and they have been kindly enough to send me a FREE TM T-Shirt for my efforts.

Or you could donate to the Kodak Racing funds if you require a custom Avatar, Lets say $1 AUD for an avatar.....

I just hope we all understand where i am coming from.
