Hello , Was doing a tear down last night to do a well needed cleaning. After removing engine .i spun the spur gear ,not smooth seems to be like a rough spot in one spot kinda like a flat spot on a tire, took off spur and does same .Any one with any ideas what might be wrong would be highly appreciated .Yes still running reverse.
Make are there is no dirt in tranny maybe?
Chipped tooth on an internal gear probably.
Hello and thanks for response I believe u r right chipped tooth ,me never tore trans apart before ,is it hard to do my self or should I but new trans . thanks

You won't mess it up they are simple to take apart.
If you get confused putting it back together, use the exploded view. I'm to the point that it takes around five minutes to remove the tranny and have it completely apart. Another five to have it back in but I also make sure I have the washers where they are supposed to be.

THANKS GUYS took apart last night ,not bad at all did have a couple chipped teeth ,I am good with top end but always looking for more torque or bottom end .am running 14 tooth bell with a 40 tooth spur on a new os 21 but some have said that is to low gearing for it so am playing around for best combo for it. will attempt to put back togather when new parts arrive and will have more ? or I will get it right ,let u know soon .THANKS
I switch between the 38t spur and the 36t spur. I always use a 14t clutch bell. I like the 36t a bit more because it is faster on the top end but still has good acceleration.
Thanks I will try the 36 first I also have 38 will try also .THANKS
Here is my 2.5 chassis with an os21 running hpi dog bones with 15/36 gears and a "stock" second gear, running trx 20% fuel

Cool Video THANKS.couple more days for my gears to come in.just got my new os21 broken in now its time to fiddle with tuning. it seems that the 15 /36 seems to be most popular for 21s .going from a bashing set up to a street set up just bought some proline low profile road rage tires and rims.what temp is your 21 running at? is that a ths pipe u r running can,t tell in video?
