No,
I beleive you have it backwords.
People use 64pitch for stock mostly and
48pitch can handle more power so people use them for mod.

Just about everyone prefers 64pitch, but some people use 48pitch, mostly outdoors, as a small pebble or sand can wipe out a spur gear.

I guess so.
TSR6, does the oneway plate go like this?


Screw > plate > gear > oneway > nut or no nut?

Took the car to a different track Saturday and got the same results. Car worked perfectly as did the kit setup! With the Associated diff spring,t-nut and bolt the diff remainded tight but smooth as silk. Now if we can just get some spare arms/hubs soon! I find myself taking wider lines than usual.

Hey guys. Just got done racing at Fernando's track in Atlanta; very nice track. Unfortunately......I only had a chance to practice running the Pro4. I didn't have a starting setup to use with foam tires on asphault and I was having a hard enough time trying to set my gas car and tune my engine. I took a hard hit at the end of the straight and ended up breaking the rear input shaft, and of course stripped the front bevel gear. The funny thing is I don't know exactly how it broke. I took a hit on the side and for the force required to snap a shaft like that I would have expected to have seen more carnage besides a stripped bevel gear. Oh well, luckily I was lazy enough that I didn't put in the Tobee aluminum input shafts.

Steve, the plate goes on the screw side of the one-way. The screws go through the brace, through the gear, and thread into the one-way shaft just like the old screws did without a nut. I would reccomend using threadlock though.
