Are the kyosho drive pins replaceable on their universals?

They don't hit the bladders at full compression.
yes, I am using the mugen shafts and I can get up to 106 droop in front if needed. thanks for clarification for others.

You have to use 2.9mm pins. Major turnoff I had when running Kyosho for 3 years. You can find the pins but not readily.

Ran my 7r for the first time last night, man the plastic spur gear is noisy. Is this normal, changing the mesh made no difference.

Shouldn't be noisy,my steel spur is quiet...I think tlr is the quietest I've heard.. Maybe it's motor noise? Is your motor used? Does everything feel pretty free?

The pinion to spur will wear in, as Long as your mesh is correct. It will Quiet down a little bit. For the 6 that is at my local, mugen has a sound all to it's own.

You use the steel spur? I have thought about it but didn't want the extra rotation weight.

Yea because all we run is outdoors..the plastic spur is very good, in the past, the only time I stripped a gear is because the motor moved..indoor the plastic will last forever

It certainly does have a noise that can be heard over everything else!

Indoor? If it's a new car, the drivetrain needs to break in..if it is new, make sure the ring/pinion gears are not too tight(no shims)

I'm running a tekin t8i and a Novak pinion and it's super quiet compared to my hobbywing combo with a tekno pinion in my eb48.2...

I run two shims to space the ring gear away from the pinion when new. It's been like that for both my nitro and electric cars
