So, I went to my LHS, got the pulley and flanges. I'm now waiting for the weekend to go and have fun at the racing track. Thanks again Norse and Johnmyall.
No problem Asaias. That's great your local hobby shop carries Yokomo. Have a blast my friend.

Ladies and Gents, just got some info per running 13.5. Fella racer whom has tested a lot of spur pinion combos per 13.5, has found that 84t spur with 30t pinion is working really good. Good acceleration, good top end and minimal fade.

I have tested 78t/29 and 81t/29,30 with good results. Will test 84t/30 and report back.

84/30 is the ticket for mine using the Reedy m3 13.5 standard stack motor.

This really does seem like a great idea, I wish I'd seen this before I made my Bezerk order! (battery stays and superflex deck).

What I have done with the standard Bezerk carbon stays though, is to shim them up 1mm. This lets me run touring car style thin hook-and-loop straps, which clear the rear belt tensioner just fine, and eliminate the Y-shaped battery stay. It does seem to add a fair amount of flex to the car.

Post some pics when you install as I would love to see.

Kerby,

Thanks for the info my friend. You are the 2nd fella whom has advised that 84/30 works excellent per 13.5. Going to try myself hopefully tomorrow.

In case anyone is looking at buying a YZ4, here is a link that has them on sale. And no, I have no associations with them. Just passing on a good deal.

any different tricks to setting the slipper when using the mckune pads? being they are of different material and just a tad thicker than stock.

I found the spur gears from Yok a little strange after ordering these. They fit my Yz-2 80tooth spur, but wont fit inside of my YZ-4 87tooth spur. Crazy!

i had a different outcome. they fit inside my yz-4 spur perfect (a little snug) but are loose inside my t5m spur. also had some other findings measuring the thickness of the pads using my calipers:
mckune pads= 0.98mm
yokomo pads= 0.78mm
associated pads= 1.02mm

The MCkune pads are advertised for high bite however they work great on everything from super low bite to super high and everywhere in between. Consistency is great on these pads. I found I can set these looser than stock pads.

Not really, you just set them in the same way you would've took to set the kit Ines.

I'm maybe a little looser on the setting then before, but the pads make up the difference.

I'm running RDRP spurs on mine & find the McKune pads fit nice and snug.

+1 on the RDRP spur gears. McKune pads fit great as u mention as well as the RDRP Spurs being nice and true. They are a tad pricey compared to Kimborough, AE, J Con, and Yok but they are worth the extra coin.
