Ouch no hotlinking big images. If you'd like email me the picture you want to host and I could put it up for you. Either that or try imageshack.us
They limit their file sizes to 1.5megs.

Here's a link to all the trans photos. I'll post the small ones. I guess a couple are to big to be veiwed by some? [] Here's some of the second set I took. Hope it helps.

Hey Cu in one of your pics you show the grubs screws lining up in the rebuild of the trans. Is this important? Because I Know I did not do this. My car seems to be running fine with out it that way. Just wondering. Thanks

I think it just makes it look pretty?

Idealy you'd want them to be at 1/3 intervals from eachother so that when everything is rotating is doesn't wobble from the weight difference... but honestly I don't really think that it matters.

1st off thanks all.. just trying to help. The thing about the grub screws is that the flats they're supposed to sit in are in line on the shaft. If you have 1 that's not inline it's probably not tightened on the flat of the shaft. If you've used Blue Locktite on it and tightened it well it MAY not move. If it does slip though it'll spin on the shaft and ruin it.

Nitro Steve has a really gppd pic of the gear mesh on the first page. They should mesh full depth. When you move the car backwards the gears and clutchbell should spin free for a few turns after the car stops moving. It's easier to check the mesh with the top plate and tank removed. A sheet of paper should fit in the gears. Everyone should watch the video on this link. This is how HPI recomends setting the mesh on the Sav X. It works for the Redcats too...[link]http://www.hpiracing.com/kits/updates.php?partNo=858[/link]

The Trans in the pics has the 44t and 39t gearing in it. You say the gear is in backwards? Meaning what?
