6.2 BUMPER RULES
6.2.1 Bumpers are not required in all classes, but when used, they must be shock absorbing and non-metallic, with no sharp edges. For safety, rigid bumpers, such as fiberglass and composites, are not permitted.
6.2.2 Front bumpers must be of at least 1/8 material (3/32 for 1/12). Bumpers will not extend forward of the body except on off-road cars. The bumper may not extend to the side beyond the outer edge of the tires.
6.2.3 Rear bumpers must be made of a solid material with rounded edges and may not extend to the side beyond the outer edges of the tires, and may not extend beyond the rearmost part of the body except in off-road vehicles.
Those are the ones I was thinking of. I guess it's open to interpretation what exactly "sharp" and "rigid" mean. Delrin is pretty damn hard.

Oleg, is the spur gear only held by pressure in the transverse layout ??? If so, is the pressure great enough to hold under mod motor treatment ???

The metal gear that attaches dig into the spur a bit when tightening the nut. Tighten it quite a bit, don't use threadlock.

Works fine when I ran a 4.0.

You mean the metal gears teeth are the only thing holding the spur gear or does the nut pressure also contribute ??? But not a pin through the spur gear though ???

I guess tire traction will probably never overcome the 12mm nut's pressure... Beats me, but I will make sure to tighten the nut well... Thanks....

Yea, it's a bit weird, but it does work if tightened well. If your spur is narrow you'll need to find a spacer, I used one from TOP.

"~1mm shorter distance between wheel axis and the lower ST03 ball".

Check page 39 of the EXL manual.
