I run Losi red F / yellow R and 4 hole pistons 1.3 all round. 22 / 27.5 . Protek shorty all the way forward. No weight up front ( I am leaning towards that as my problem). Thoughts, I have plenty side bite and forward bit, a stiffer rear spring? Thoughts?
You might want to give the pink losi rear spring a try it should do the trick for you.

Has anyone had any issues with the spur gear rubbing the gear cover? I'm going to try heating up the cover and push out the area around the spur gear.

Dang, that piece is turning out to be a bugger.. I haven't had a issues with mine rubbing, although the top hole startied to crack, I CA'ed a plastic washer over the hole, and its holding atm..Careful, they are hard to get...lets do a combo order on the TEAM site and split shipping..

What are most 9.5T guys running as far as gearing?

I currently have a LRP 9.5 with 81s/25p and my temps after a 15min run was only 104... I am thinking I might be able to get a 28p in there. Outside air temps were high 70's almost 80.

What I dont like about the stock is that it seems to amplify the sounds of the gear mesh. Will this help with that?

by the way...one of the gear covers says "undertray" with a different part number.

No idea, all I care about is the fact that it isnt going to break!

My experience is that the stock spur is the cause of the noise. With RW gears both of our cars are as quiet as anything else on the track.
