single speed to 2 speed upgrade
 
so my thunder tiger TS4N is currently fitted with s single speed setup.

i was hoping some of you can post up a link to where i can buy all the relevant parts to upgrade to a 2 speed setup. and also a list of the parts as i dont actually know exactly what parts i need to buy. also if a gasket needs replacing and is creating a leak would this result in the following 2 symptoms, firstly lost in efficiency from the engine i.e not moving until mid-high rpms from idle. also accelerated fuel consumption?

your assistance is greatly appreciated as with all of my threads and look forward to reading your replies.

also several screws on the undercarraige require tightening regulary, i.e after every run. would you recomend threadlock or will superglue suffice?

I don't know about the 2-speed, but I can tell you that a leak in the engine will result in those symptoms and that threadlocker is definitely better than superglue.

be careful with red threadlocker, it makes it a PITA to get the screws back out I recommend the blue threadlocker... too many times I have bought used RCs that had red and the screws were inpossible to get out and required drilling and tapping in the end... Blue LocTite is the best...

Red loctite is extra strength. Definitely make sure you get low strength loctite like zach said. Seeing as you are in the UK and I am unfamiliar with the TS4N, I can't tell you which parts to get. Wish I could be of more assistance.
