Gearbox assembly very easy just follow diagrams in the instruction manual i have placed the kit gears in for the time being and will replace with metal final drive at a later date .




Just make sure the drive cogs are measure exactly 14.5mm from base of can motor to the end of drive cogs

would advise getting 2x10g cera grease tubes the kit does not supply enough .

NOTE :-
Line up the the can motor drive cogs so the entire cog and drive gear TEETH mesh get it wrong and the drive gear will wear quickly so take your time adjusting .

if you decide to upgrade drive gears it is really easy so do not stress not like the 2A6 which is a task .
This RC tank is a keeper for sure 👍
