    Yeah, that's kind of weird for your planetary gears to go before your spur gear does. Your slipper clutch on your spur gear shouldn't be set too tight or else it won't be able to do it's job...

    I never heard of using the trx 2.5 engine for that purpose.

    The engine should be able to run upside-down or sideways but I'm not sure for how long or how it would affect the engine.

    Ok, thanks for clearing that up. So if the spur gear has more teeth but still the same pitch, then it will just be bigger in circumference right? Same with the clutch bell?
