I got my new feul ine and exaust tip on and i took it out to run it. Of coarse it sounded differnt but it was reving too soon. Well ididnt give it ne thought, i figured it was just running a lil lean, but i was seeing smoke still and then i thought maybe the extender was just messing wiht the sound. Well then all of a sudded the car stoped moving and it was reving REAL high. I was scared out of my pants running to the truck and riping he body off to shut it down. After i shut it down i was hearing a whining sound from the motor and the cluth bell gear had lost mesh with the spur gear and caused it stop moving! I looked at the spur gear and the break lever that runs over the spur had been touching and rounded off the teeth. Ne one know how th get that bar to stay off the gear? Youc cant push it up but it just falls back down on the gear.
But then when i got to looking at the spur, I bent it! and it would mesh at times and then it would miss it again. Well after i pulled the spur off and looked at it. (you arent going to belive this) the metal plates that are on either side of the gear were melted to the gear! and after PRYED them off, the lil red weights that goed inside it. They were pushed towards the center of the gear like the were going to go out the midde and plastic molded around them!!!! Good god my motor has some power to pull itself out of a bind and do that.
I will be going to the hobbie shop sometime to see about the wieghts and the gear and new metal pieces.
Any help on the break bar thta goes over the sput is greatly appreciated.
