Ok, i just got done reading this thread.
First off , I wont even put a spur on my 2wd without glueing the pads on.
Why- it makes working on your car way easier and some times the slipper
doesnt have enough pressure to completely flatten out the pads making them wear uneven.Plus if the spur is not totally flat "molded" you have to put the pads back on the exact same way you took them off to get even wear.I just weighed the bearing it is 0.4 grams a 4-40x3/8 flathead
screw is 0.5 grams so it weighes nothing.Being so close to the center
of the top shaft you wont see a flywheel effect,How often do you see a
factory driver strip a spur? When you run your slipper loose the gear gets really hot,there is no telling what is going on in there."HOT PLASTIC RUBBING ON YOUR TOPSHAFT" HMMMMMM? I wonder if thats why people
who run there slippers loose stirp gears..I dont know sounds good..
Anyway the bearing makes the gear run way truer.Also,"they don't wear"
If you look in the dictionary under "PRShiznit" there is a picture of the gear.
