Postby dmatrix » Mon Apr 23, 2007 7:47 pm

Im just got this today runs good and just have a few questions. Does anyone know what year this would be and what parts i should start first with in upgrading and maybe where to get the parts? Also it is a jumpy when i first take off didn't know if it was supposed to be like because it has posie or not? This happens while in the yard.

Sounds like the belt has a little wear, or someone burned it a little trying to climb a hill, or powerbraking, and its engaging then slipping momentarily as you take off.

Bingo, order the Manco 5959 belt from the GKRU store to fix this.
