To maintain the same gear ratio I'm at now, I need to be at 100/33 or something close to that. Thanks Josh.

I'm using the Robinso racing spur gears. Part number will change with the size.

I don't think you can get a 100/ 33 to work. The smallest pinion with a 100 spur is somewhere around a 35 or 36. Maybe go up to a 106?

Look at the inside set of holes on any spur gear, if it has 6 holes you can run it in a tc5.

if your running in stock or 19t you don't need the three screws to hold the spur gear on. You only need two. Most 64p spur gears that we seem to be getting around here only have two holes that line up and I didn't have any issues with my TC5 and I haven't had any issues with my TC5R. Or with my '007, Pro 4.

As opposed to yours that sounds like a shotgun going off in an enclosed building they are.

i agree they seem to strip out when u only use 2 screws the hub for the spur has 6 holes i use all 6 my spur gear doesnt move and more rotating mass helps carry corner speed

I'dlove to know what I'm doing right if you guys are tapping boards and stripping spur gears. I watched a guy, who's car I pretty much built, rip a corner off of his car because of a head on impact with another car, right after he bounced off the boards and he's still using the same spur. I'm using the same spur I started the season with. 2 screws in it and all.
