    Used to meet at a local park on Sunday mornings to drag race on a 100 yard dirt strip along the fence. Got bored with blowing the Lexans off the other guys... And changing Pistons all the time.

    Well it gives some down time to re grease diffs and tranny and inspect bearings for slop or grit

    Need some nitro rc help.

    I have 2 tmaxx exact same other then one has a 2.5 and other has a 2.5r.
    First off i got a roller couple years a go to learn on. Motor was blown. Docided to buy a new 2.5r. Got put baxk togeather and all worked well.
    Last summer picked up the swcond one with a freshly rebuilt 2.5. Fired it up and noticed it wasnt shifting gears. This one was in pretty much mint shape so i decided to put my new motor in this one. After i tried it i noticed the tranny was shifting fine. Sweet.


    Back to the older tmaxx i put the regular 2.5 in the older more worn out one and noticed it wont shift with the old motor while it shifted perfect before with new motor.
    Any idea as to why it wont shift with this motor. I readjusted slipper clutch. Tried tuning it a little leaner for little more power and still no shift.

    Anyone have any ideas to try?

    I got a nitro hpi savage( i think savage) im working on that my son got. Was supposed to be a mint good running rc but the motor is shot.
    My question is the tranny when i spin spur gear counter clockwise ( from standing behing rc) should it free spin or engage the the tranny spinning the wheels.
    Dont know much about the hpi as i got traxxas. My traxxas will free spin without engaging.
    Any help would be great.

    Thanks[​IMG]

    Hpi savage nitro will free spin 1 direction and lock in the other direction cause of the internal 2 speed in the tranny. What was shot about the motor? Low compression

    Did you check the spur size and clutch drum size. They might have a different gear ratio that is not spinning the tranny as fast. I think the 2nd gear is also adjustable with a Allen wrench look for rubber plugs on tranny case and spin tranny slow till you se Allen screws and turn out a 1/4 turn at a time till it starts shifting

    I just traded my axial wraith rock crawler for a Fpv system yesterday so I can try fpv flight soon on my planes. Woot woot. It's definitely a different way to operate rc and will take some getting use to.
