    Is this shift point correct?

    I was having trouble getting my Slayer to shift into second gear since replacing 36 tooth spur gear with 38, and also accidentally adjusting slipper clutch.

    Now i have those two sorted, i adjusted shift point in my tranny, and Im unsure if its in the correct spot, can you please take a look at my youtube upload and let me know your opinion?

    Youtube Vid is Here

    Cheers

    Sounds perfect....not holding low gear to long, but allowing the truck to get moving well before pulling 2nd gear in, I would be happy with that

    Good Job

    Phew, thanks for that, its been a couple of days fiddling trying to get it running right... its a relief to hear it shift into second again!

    I must say it was kind of a good thing this happening, I now know a lot more about the car since having to remove the Tranny and take a look inside, then put back together. Increased my knowledge greatly.

    It is good to see someone doing the work themselves rather than just dumping it on the LHS counter and saying fix this...I reckon you get a feeling of accomplishment when you fix something yourself

    I have always said RC is a Hands On Hobby and doing it yourself just helps to keep the hobby affordable and more interesting

    Yeh I agree with you Towie, I couldn't handle someone else working on my trucks. I was fretting just letting you and the boys at Oz Rc do some soldering on the Apache SC and putting a couple of bits and pieces on the thing LOL.

    Nice job on the tune some_evil, shift sounds perfect mate.
