    you will like it, i like mine alot. just feel the mesh, you dont have to see it, just a little play between the gears. you can fit the hump back in it, i do in all my cars.

    turn shift screw clockwise to make it shift at higher rpm's and counterclockwise to make it shift at lower rpm's. it really depends on what its doing, is it stuck in first or second? does it take off slow? if so it stuck in second and you can try to turn the shifter screw clockwise.

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Lighting VX Thread

    Well the engine on my lightining finally gave out I am gonna do the redcat engine replacement. I wanted to get the infinity motor that came with my volcano pro but I can't seem to find it one the redcat website. I looks like they have a sh .18 and a vertex .18 so I was hoping someone could make a suggestion as to which one to get thanks so much!
