    hello bashers and thrashers.
    relatively new to the rc car scene, I bought my first nitro, a RTR savage x 4.6 bigblock.
    I have purchased a new 3 speed conversion kit and went about dismantling for the conversion, only to find that the spacer that sits between the c clip and the smallest of the 3 small metal gears is too long. there is an obvious difference in the length of the standard 2speed cogs and the 3 speed cogs when placed on the shaft.
    has anyone else done the conversion themselves?
    did you run into this trouble?
    I hope someone can shed some light on this. please help, I wanna get this thing screaming into 3rd gear!

    There should of been a plastic spacer in the middle of the plastic third gear that came with it
