Savage X 4.6 RTR not going into 2nd gear.
Last week I finally noticed that my new truck that I was tuning isn't going into second gear. I watched the HPI video and seen how they adjust the timing. So I open the cover and blah blah and wow is that screw very tight. Now the HPI video says to use 90 degree turns which is a quarter so I do two quarter turns and still no luck. Do I have the amount to turn wrong? If the screw was set all the way in, is it shifting to second immediately and I need to make some full turns? I have the tuning set still pretty rich on the low setting but it accelerates quick and does wheelies. Do I need to tune that more or is it the screw in the transmission?

I did my best to take video of the truck running at or very near full throttle. Please listen and let me know what you think.

I am no Savage expert by any means but from the video I would say it is in second gear.

agree that sucker looks to be in 2nd gear its more likely skipping its 1st gear, or swapping gears while its low.
Some members in the past have said they couldn't hear the gear swap thinking it was never going into 2nd like you. When they changed the trannys shift point, and then saw the difference it turned out the tranny was shifting early on them.
You should look up adjusting the trannys shift points online if you want to get it going right.
