Default 2 Speed on a Buggy?! I know its out there! Can I get one for a Mugen?

I was talking to i8tweety last night, and we were talking about 2 speed transmissions for buggies and he mentioned that Kyosho has one and its just a matter of getting it to fit in another buggy (I wanna get one in mine).

I'm gonna look around but can someone post a picture of this?! Please!

Thanks

The OFNA 2 speed is what I use as a base. I machined a new center shaft to fit the uprights, and voila, it fits my buggy.

I'm working on converting a serpent 2 speed (clutch type) complete with centax clutch to my GS Storm Pro. Wish me luck.

And I thought you were going to laugh at the fact that I'm building it for my storm pro and not my kyosho.

We are R/C Addicts.. NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING inventive will ever be dissed upon
Especially if it makes perfect sense!!

I really dont see what thats funny/laughable! Very inventive!!
But dude once I get my radio.. and other stuff taken care of, I'm gonna put a 2 speed on my buggy.

Just might be able to set some kind of record, if you gear everything right, and stick an engine capable of 40,000+rpms

I'm running Rossi HPS (with ceramic piston technology). I've yet to see an engine that will run with it (aside from another Rossi). And yes, it will fly.

And I'm running a BM.. just bought an R1 Radio for it.
Cant wait!
i8tweety also sent me an 18T clutch bell for it too.
Add up the following:

18T Clutch
High power motor
2 Speed Tranny

One MAD buggy comin up!!
But I think I'm gonna wait a coupla gallons.. and get the motor thouroughly broken in before I put in the 2 speed.

How much is the two speed tranny anyway bob?! Tower?
