i know it sucks, but that shaft was the best investment i've made even though its the only tresrey part i've bought. just made things easier.

if you think you've wasted money on rw spurs, the first couple times you ream out the center and its slightly off and then you start chewing up spur gears again, you'll be pissed.

i'd either search high and low for the durango spurs through all the vendors possible or you can try reaming. I did an ae spur and bored out the center and you could tell it was slightly off. even taking my time. slipper pad shows the offcenter based on how much is showing on each side of the plate.

sucks you had bad luck, and maybe its because i'm running stock motor in the truck, but my 75 in it is lasting great.

Make sure your slipper pads are nicely placed and that the shaft isn't bent. Also make sure your mesh is set correctly and the motor screws are nice and tight. I've been using my RW for over a year and its flawless.

Are they not machined ?

Yes they are. So therefore the best spur you could get. I don't understand why that other guy had issues with them? That's all i've been using for the past 9 months without an issue. I think he had some motor or transmission screws get loose for him to eat a spur.

sounds like user error to me....

RW spurs are the finest I have ever used. Very "round" and accurately machined over the molded gears

i need a 81 spur gear. the schmuacher will fit, i know.
rw spur gears: i dont like the quality of the rw spr gears. they are not round enough.
i like durango spur gears, good quality but 81 size is never avaible here.

i dont wanna to buy the tresrey slipper shaft.

someone try to reaming out the asso spur gears?
i run my dex210 with a 6.5 engine on carpet and want to gears with the smaller spur gear.

asso spur gears are always avaible, so i think its better to try this

thank you

We have a guy at our track that runs through spur gears like crazy... he just can't ever seem to get the mesh right on them... Maybe you should have some of your friends look at your gear mesh. If your typing is any indication of your attention to detail... you may have found your problem. Set your spur gear and then have someone check your gear mesh... those RW spurs are the best thing since sliced bread.... and if you're having an issue with them, then you are going to have an issue with any spur you touch. Spur gears should last longer than "a couple of wheeks and month".

Also, best way to set your gear mesh.. if you don't like to "eyeball" it:

Put on a pinion gear one tooth bigger than the one you want to run and put the gear mesh as far into the spur as you can get it. Make sure their is no gap between your teeth at all. Then tighten your motor. Take off the pinion and put the 1-tooth smaller pinion on. Voila, awesome gear mesh.... roll it around to make sure there aren't any gaps that are too big.

I don't think the problem is the spur gears themselves....

like stated above check your gear mesh. are you using the paper method or any other method or just eyeballing it

I have toasted 1 rw spur. The motor moved on a big hit so that's to be expected. My current rw has been on for roughly 8 months racing avg 8+ nights a month plus practice. I think they are the best made.

What are common parts to have in my pit box? Hobby shop at the track doesn't carry Durango parts so I need to have all the spares on hand myself. All I have seen broken at the track is a rear shock tower. We race ozite carpet over concrete, 2x4 boards - not a very forgiving track.
I would say shock towers, front & rear hubs and c-hubs, and maybe tranny cases, some have broken or pulled the ballstuds out of the mounts. I have had no issues with my car, I did let a friend drive it and he broke a c-hub for me..I have had my car since initial release, and its been very reliable..

Lol, I have seen this first hand, those screws like to move around if you don't loctite 'em..

Hey thats a neat trick.. I have had a hard time explaining it to my boys how to set up gear mesh. This might help... Thanks

so i just installed the losi lungsford turnbuckles with losi ball studs and titanium hinge pins on before the install i could feel a noticeable difference by hand my gram scale battery is dead or i would have weighed ,,im trying to figure out my bump steer the cf rack i have only has one centered hole my setup is very close to http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...2012072829.pdf ....i compensated for cold with 2.5wt under his f/r i get close to 0 bumpsteer with no spacers on steering knuckles or rack i have 37g added on the front but a 44g servo and 30g brass rf the buggy feels great with the sc10 gear diff but i feel like i have almost no on power steering any opinions? the only thing i can think of is more weight in front or black front springs for a little more roll

The turnbuckles, and hinge pins are 1 gram each lighter, and each ball stud is .5 gram lighter.
