regulated gears. but as I said the car does not take over, the 2nd gear changes and dies. The car took 15 tanks and was not tired. suspected clutch pabuc ...Not sure buddy I am fairly new to the rc hobby wish I could help ya mine isn’t shifting yet due to break in or clutches slipping gonna get couple more tank in ol’ girl then move on to adjustment....did u adjust ur 3rd gear setting????
No I haven’t checked that yet but def will also I think I am gonna year her down and seal her all up and most def won’t use junk tools i am a 100% red level Honda motorcycle tech so I have been down that road using cheap Mickey Mouse tools lol will post when I get figured outDid you do a leak test on the engine? In my experience,the head bolts loosen after a certain time of running/sitting/heat cycling. At least on my nitro stuff. I picked up a GST 7.7 almost new in the box for $150 five or so years ago and the only thing I needed to get it running was tighten the head bolts (I should add that I did strip the whole thing down and loctite all metal fasteners soon after,but in theory a pretty simple fix).
If it was mine,I'd spring for a set of Allen wrenches (don't scrimp on this,a stripped hex head bolt from using Chinesium tools down a blind hole is not a fun afternoon!).
Please let us know what the fix was as I'm sure it will help more than one subscriber.
Good luck! Stan Durround
