    RE: won't roll backwards

    How did you check the gear mesh? It's probably too loose.

    gear mesh is the play between the spur gear and the clutchbell. You could have it too tight, too loose which will destroy your gears.

    RE: won't roll backwards

    When you mount the engine in the vehicle, cut a small strip of printer paper about 2 inches long. When you mest the spur gear and clutch bell, make sure you crimp the paper nice and tight in between the gears. Don't put enough presure to put the vehicle through you table, but enough to make sure your gears are meshed tight. Pull the paper out and you have a good gear mesh. Try that and see if it help.
