  1. Hi all, We are going to add a new class at WASCRG next year, that being the Pioneer muscle car class. I picked myself up the General Lee a while back, absolutely beautiful model, kept that one for the shelf. Decided I would like to race the General so purchased another to race at the club. I've done most of the basic tuning- glued the rear bushings, motor etc, added MJK's, sanded the fronts down, and sanded the chassis to allow for a little body roll etc. I also glued the two rear exhausts to the body when I screwed the chassis to the body and then proceeded to cut the exhausts of level with the chassis, allowing the body roll. This being a pretty much stock class except for the MJK's we really can't change out anything. The problem I have is that the gear mesh is atrocious, sounds like a chaff cutter, even after being run in for 15+ hours over the last week etc. I have turned the wheels by hand and the spur gear seems to be binding in two spots. I've tried Cerama-grease like I do on most models to quieten them down but this model doesn't really seem to be quieting. Has anyone else here had a go at the General Lee yet, and if so do they have any tips on the gear mesh? I was thinking of reversing the spur gear to see what happens, even trying the lighter/heat trick but I've only ever done that on inline cars. Any ideas? cheers Matt
