Transmission rebuild.
OK so I've rebuilt my transmission. Lots of swearing and walking away to come back to it. 2 years of mud and water had done there worst with several broken bearings and brown grease everywhere. Soni cleaned her up, dremeled a lot of bearings rusted to the shaft and rebuilt her. Anyways, I've yet to fit the motor but I seem to have a freewheel point between high and low ratios which I never had before. Any thoughts on this guys? It never seemed to have a dead spot before was always engaged.

Re: Transmission rebuild.
As there's no clutch, there needs to be space between Hi and Lo, so that's normal.

Re: Transmission rebuild.
Cheers mate, sounds daft but apart from driving it I've never payed much attention until I'd rebuilt it.

Re: Transmission rebuild.
You would only notice when shifting manually (while reworking as you did) or with a defective Servo or Rx/Tx.
The shift servo is either Hi or Lo and travels through the "neither zone" pretty fast.

Use PB Blaster and wait a bit to get those bearings out. Blaster also rejuvenates plastic very nicely :)
